Manchester United line up sensational move for PL playmaker

By Mark Peters IN General,Transfers - 20:10 May 14th 2016

Losing to West Ham on Tuesday night has severely dented Manchester United’s hopes of qualifying for the Champions League, thus making an exit for Louis van Gaal increasingly likely.

Jose Mourinho has been widely tipped to take over from the Dutchman at Old Trafford and reports in the Daily Star are linking him with a move for Mesut Özil.

MESUT OZIL

This is definitely a rumour that could gather pace over the course of the summer, as the Arsenal playmaker enjoyed three excellent seasons operating under the self-styled ‘Special One’ at Real Madrid.

In the last of those, back in 2012/13, the Germany international was directly involved in 26 La Liga goals, some eight more than Angel di Maria managed from a similar amount of playing time:

Unlike the Argentinian, who struggled to adapt to the demands of English football when he joined Manchester United, Özil’s experience of playing in the Premier League would mean that he should have no trouble settling in.

In terms of the way in which they play the game, Juan Mata is the most similar individual that the Red Devils have to the 27-year-old Arsenal playmaker, but the Spaniard has been unable to keep pace with him this season in terms of top-flight assists:
