Ozil wants Man Utd move: Reps in contact with United officials

Real Madrid midfielder Mesut Ozil is keen on a move to Manchester United. The Daily Mail says United, who are anxious to make a big-name signing, are being offered Ozil for £40m.

The Germany star, 24, was a target for Sir Alex Ferguson after the 2010 World Cup but he joined Real instead for £12.5m. Now he is ready to quit the Spanish giants.

Ozil's representatives have made it clear he would welcome a move to United and that Madrid could accept £35m as they look to fund a world-record bid for Gareth Bale from Tottenham.

The former Werder Bremen player is under contract until 2016 but is said to have become unsettled by Real's pursuit of Bale just a year after they beat United to sign Luka Modric from Spurs.
