Real Madrid sold Ozil to Arsenal because of Miss Venezuela!

Real Madrid decided to sell Mesut Ozil to Arsenal in part because of his roving eye, it is claimed. Ozil's obsession with a former Miss Venezuela could have threatened his football career, it was ­reported yesterday.

The £42.5million ace is said to have worn himself out flying to Italy several times a month to see Milan-based ­model Aida Yespica - once dubbed the world's hottest WAG.

German-born Ozil's weakness for beautiful women was a major factor in Real Madrid's decision to sell him, according to El Mundo.

It claimed: "The early morning trips, ­extended to the last minute of passion, led to a down affecting his performances."
