Ozil set for Barca: Lack of funds costs United again?

So then, it looks like Mesut Ozil is about to sign for Barcelona; it will be no great surprise if it actually happens. But, so much for the reports claiming United were keeping their powder dry until the player ran down his contract; that amounted to the same old tired media bullshit from the usual suspects.

It is inconceivable that the likes of Ferguson, Wenger, Ancelotti, Mourinho and Pep Guardiola wouldn't want a player of Ozil's undoubted talents within their respective squads.

Players of Ozil's ability do not come around that often and when they're available for knockdown prices, as a fan, you live in hope your club will sign the said player.

Ozil was one of the few genuine bright stars of the World Cup which makes United's apparent failure to even make any move to sign him even more damning.

Ferguson has little room to manoeuvre in the transfer market due to lack of funds and for that we have to blame the Glazer family.


  1. He isn't going to Barca. It's already been denied.

    If we're going to get him I imagine it will be done by Friday. I am quietly optimistic.

  3. OK, I have found the link:

    Still, I have zero confidence that United will sign Ozil for the reason outlined in my post.

  4. I'd already posted a link, but thanks. I hope you're right because we definitely need a player of Ozil's calibre.
