Dad: Mesut Ozil WILL play for Real Madrid

The father of Mesut Ozil says they've agreed personal terms with Real Madrid president Florentino Perez. Werder Bremen chief Klaus Allofs insists Ozil is now not for sale.

But the player's father, Mustafa, told Hurriyet: "Mesut and I stayed at the chalet of Florentino Perez in Madrid, he invited us and we were able to agree things really fast because almost everything we spoke about was agreed to.

"I liked his willingness to help my child to play for his club.

"I promised Florentino that if Werder Bremen kept Mesut from leaving now, come next year he will play for Real Madrid for free because his contract ends this season.

"He also now knows that our word is sacred and we are very responsible when deciding on such things."
