$24m superstar rejects Manchester United and agrees to join Barcelona in January


Not as many but still a fair few feel that Arsenal would be better off accepting that Alexis Sanchez no longer wants to play for arsenal and so we should cash in and sell him in the next transfer window rather than losing the Chilean worldwide next summer when his contract runs out.

Barcelona have major reservations over signing Mesut Ozil due to their bad experiences with Arda Turan, potentially leaving the path clear for Manchester United to sign the Arsenal contract rebel.

Barcelona's protracted negotiations with Liverpool over Philippe Coutinho has meant alternatives to the Brazilian have been identified. Look at who he would be assisting - Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez. they are not going to turn him down because they know his vision. "It is other people who are the ones who have to make a decision". "But when he's not happy, he doesn't".

And Catalan reporter Quique Guasch told Spanish outlet Catalunya Radio that Ozil had agreed a three-and-a-half year contract and is expected to cost around £17.8million.

According to numerous news sources, including AS, Barcelona are set to take advantage of the contract of a player fast running out.

And reports in Spain claim he has an agreement with Barca for a January move.

Turan's big wages and poor performances have made him hard to sell on, and some Barcelona officials are concerned Ozil's career could go the same way after his indifferent spell with Arsenal in the Premier League.

Now only that, even if Barcelona wanted to pay such a salary, there's worry over whether Ozil would fit in with the club's dressing room.
