Arsenal legend Ian Wright reveals the real reason Mesut Ozil signed a new contract
That’s according to Gunners legend Ian Wright.
The German became the club’s top earner earlier this month when he penned a new three-and-a-half-year contract worth £350,000-a-week.
Ozil was linked with a move away from the Emirates and was expected to follow in the footsteps of Sanchez.
The Chilean completed a long-awaited switch to Manchester United in a swap deal that saw Armenian winger Henrikh Mkhitaryan move the other way.
Arsenal had been dragging their heels all season, refusing to pander to Ozil’s excessive wage demands.
