How Mesut Ozil could inspire major change in Man Utd's transfer policy

How Mesut Ozil could inspire major change in Man Utd's transfer policy

The former Arsenal midfielder looks to have inspired Manchester United.

Mesut Ozil looks to have inspired a change in the way Manchester United intend to manage their transfer business in future.

The Red Devils have endured a difficult season under Erik ten Hag, having already crashed out of both the Champions League and Carabao Cup.

As a result, a number of first team stars have been linked with a January exit.

In fact, the club have reportedly drawn up a four-man transfer shortlist of players who could leave this winter including Jadon Sancho, Casemiro, Raphael Varane and Anthony Martial.

It would come as little surprise if Sancho left Old Trafford following a public spat with Ten Hag.

Juventus and former club Borussia Dortmund have both been rumoured with a move for the 23-year-old in January, who has continued to train away from the rest of the first-team squad after refusing to apologise his manager.

But if United are unable to recoup some of the £73 million they paid for the winger back in 2021, they will reportedly consider terminating his contract.

That's according to Sky Sports, who claim that the club are using Arsenal "as as an example where cutting ties with players instead of trying to hold out for a fee can help reshape a squad and create an environment of excellence".

The Gunners have been ruthless with a number of players in the past since Mikel Arteta took charge, with Mesut Ozil, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Nicolas Pepe all allowed to leave as free agents.

The report adds that Sir Jim Ratcliffe's company INEOS "greatly admire" the "decisive action" and would like to implement similar discipline at Old Trafford.
