Man Utd boss Ferguson travels to London to check on Ozil

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has made a check on Germany World Cup star Mesut Ozil.

Ferguson was an interested spectator at Craven Cottage to watch Fulham's final pre-season friendly with Werder Bremen.

Although the Manchester United boss has claimed he is happy with his current squad, the opportunity to take a look at Germany playmaker Mesut Ozil was too much to resist.

Ferguson even swerved United's annual public training session at Old Trafford to see Ozil in action and given the 21-year-old has said previously how much he admires United, the Scot's presence will only fuel rumours of an imminent transfer.

Not that Ozil will have been too pleased about the result though as Fulham strode to an impressive 5-1 win, with Zoltan Gera netting a hat-trick.
