LEAKED: Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal contract has Real Madrid buy-back clause

Football whistle blowers Football Leaks have reportedly uncovered some huge news regarding Mesut Ozil’s Arsenal contract by revealing that the German international has a buy-back clause in his deal.

Most English sources have reported that Ozil joined the Gunners in a £42.4million deal back in 2013, however, the true details have since been revealed over the true cost.

It now seems that Arsenal stumped up an initial fee €44 million, which is adorned with another €6 million fee (paid in six €1 million instalments) for every season up to six years that Arsenal qualify for the Champions League with Ozil in their squad.

And based on the current currency exchange, that’s worked out at £38 million.

However, perhaps the biggest story in the deal is the buy-back clause Madrid have installed should he ever opt to move on from North London.

Real will have 48 hours to act upon their first refusal or else Arsenal will have free reign to sell him to whoever they please.

But even if Real don’t make a move to bring him back, they will still stand to earn an impressive 33% of any sell on fee that Arsenal receive for his signature.
