Determined Ozil has no reason to consider leaving Real Madrid

Mesut Ozil has no reason to consider his future at Real Madrid.

The future of the German international has been the subject of much speculation of late, having lost his place for the 4-1 UEFA Champions League win over Ajax last week. And even though he returned for the 2-2 El Clasico draw with Barcelona on Sunday, coach Jose Mourinho has suggested that the playmaker ‘lacks quality’.

Manchester United are known admirers of the 23-year-old, having been heavily linked with him before he left Werder Bremen for the Bernabeu in 2010. And whilst the Reds would likely jump at the chance of luring Ozil to Old Trafford, the midfielder insists he has no intention of quitting the Spanish capital anytime soon.

"When you play for Real Madrid you can not think of anything else," Ozil told Bild. "I know nothing and I have no reason to leave. I don't have to prove anything to anyone. I do not play football to prove something to someone, but because I enjoy football."
