Deal, personal terms, all the financial bits have been agreed. Ozil believed to be undergoing a medical in Germany this lunch-time.
Gareth Bale whipping out some Spanish to delight the Real Madrid crowd. Looks so happy. Already adapting to the culture, brilliant for him. A real boyhood dream.
Can't say I have I'm afraid.
It is a rumour to come out today. Khedira and Mourinho have a good relationship after he brought him to Madrid. It is unlikely Madrid will let Ozil and Khedira go, especially as Di Maria could also be off.
Add Diaby, Rosicky, Ox and Flamini to that mix also!
As has been the case before at Real Madrid, players generally don't want to leave but when a big money signing is made, they may it clear to the other players that they won't be playing anymore. That quickly makes them consider leaving, especially in a world cup year!
Rumours coming out now that Arsenal are in advanced talks about signing Angel Di Maria.
Surely if Ozil and Di Maria were to both leave, then Madrid could have another signing lined up? Suarez perhaps?
Three weeks ago, Arsenal were the laughing stock of the Premier League after losing to Aston Villa. Four wins later how things change. Unless this Ozil deal spectacularly falls through...
No chance of that one. In this window at least.
