The Arsenal star has not signed a new contract at the Emirates with Arsene Wenger admitting that both Alexis Sanchez and Ozil will be sold in January.
The German international is free to open negotiations with other clubs but it is unlikely that he would be able to transfer in January and may just move after his contract ends.
By that time, he will be able to secure a free transfer where he can secure a wage hike. Ozil is earning £154,000-a-week and plans to have this salary increase by 30 per cent to £202,000-a-week making him one of Premier League top earners.
Although Ozil has been heavily linked with a move to United, it still does not look like that United are moving to prioritise the striker. Ozil is also open to returning to Madrid or a possible move to Barcelona, however, United are the only Premier League club he wants to transfer to.
