German trio welcome cash windfall from Ozil's Arsenal move

Mesut Ozil's former German clubs are all expecting a tidy windfall from his move to Arsenal.

Real Madrid sold the midfield schemer to Arsenal yesterday for a Gunners record fee of €50 million.

WAZ says Rot-Weiss Essen, Schalke and Werder Bremen will all receive a small percentage - understood to be five per cent - of Ozil's fee to be split between them.

Ozil left Werder for Real in 2010.
