Ozil joining Fenerbahce on less than Cedric earns at Arsenal

Mesut Ozil has taken a massive pay-cut on his Arsenal wages to join Fenerbahce.

AS says he will earn £67,000-per-week at Fenerbahce - which is 80 per cent less than he raked in at Arsenal.

The midfielder, 32, has agreed to take a £283,000-per-week pay cut to join the Turkish giants this month.

Ozil was paid £350,000-per-week at Arsenal despite being frozen out of the first-team.

But he will sign for Fenerbahce on a three-and-a-half year deal worth £3.5million a year.

The transfer will see Ozil earn just 20 per cent of what he has been used to in North London.

He will pocket less than the likes of Cedric Soares, who earns £75,000-per-week at Arsenal.

But it has been revealed that he could land £670,000 in bonuses alone this season.

He will be handed an extra £445,000 if he helps Fenerbahce to a first league title since 2014.

A return to the Champions League would see new boy Ozil pocket another £222,000 bonus.
