Manchester United have endured a great start to the season and find themselves joint top of the Premier League table only behind rivals Manchester City on goal difference.
However, it seems that manager Jose Mourinho has already got his sights on next season and he may have already identified one of his former players who he will be able to bring in on a free transfer next summer.
Of course we are talking about the German playmaker that is Mesut Özil. The current Arsenal man has become frustrated with the North-London club as they failed to qualify for the Champions League last season. On top of this the signings made by Arsene Wenger have been disappointing and it looks like Arsenal could lose both Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Özil on free transfers.
Mesut Özil has previously played under Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid where he arguably played his best football. It is understood that Mourinho would welcome Mesut Özil with open arms and that the player himself would be really keen to make the move.
Manchester United however have plenty of players who can occupy the number ten role already with the likes of Mata, Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba. So should Mesut Özil make the move would that signal the end for Juan Mata at Old Trafford?
