Hi Ed,

Not to be reactionary, but is there actually any market for Ozil?


{Ed002's Note - The club are not looking to sell him but if they were there would need to be an enormous financial shift unless he were to head to China or perhaps the Middle East. Turkish clubs would want him but that would never be viable. The European clubs who can afford him, and there are few, have no interest and in the US he would need to significantly reduce his financial demands. Arsenal went far, far beyond what should have been offered and with the outrageous payments to PEA drove the club in to a difficult area with FFP wages. The club needs to be smarter moving forward and hope they don’t need to be paying off a manager next summer.}

On a long term £350,000 a week deal, not a chance. Fully agree with Ed002's comments.
Whoever agreed to the deal should be shot!

hi ed do you have any insight in to how come the club keeps getting in to the same predicament and unable or unwilling to renew contracts early so players are entering the last year of their contracts holding all the aces.

{Ed002's Note - Players will not want to sign contracts early without a financial incentive. Any clubs running close to the FFP restictions cannot afford to do that.}

That's worrying that we can't afford to offer early renewals, it's costing much more in the long run, missing out on transfer fees and having to offer even higher wages when it comes to crunch time. Is there a reason we don't normally negotiate 1 year extension options like utd do?

{Ed002's Note - You are worrying unnecessarily about contracts, there has only been an issue in a couple of cases. In terms of affordability at this time, a considerable financial judder was felt with the Oezil contract, HM and PEA earlier this year - regardless of Sanchez leaving.}

Thanks Ed. My question came a bit out of the blue.
