German club Wender Bremen are almost certain to hang onto star midfielder Mesut Ozil.
The Germany international, who performed brilliantly at the World Cup, has become a target for a number of big European clubs including Real Madrid and Manchester United but insists he will see out his contract at Bremen.
He also stated that he would not be following Germany teammate Sami Khedira to Real this summer as has been heavily reported recently.
“I am really, really happy for Sami and I am keeping my fingers crossed for him,” Ozil told Bild am Sonntag.
“It is very good for German football that big clubs are interested in German players. In recent years, there has only really been Michael Ballack who represented German football at a top club.
“For now, my situation for the next 12 months is clear. Only the facts count and the fact is, I am under contract with Werder. I cannot know what comes after that.”
It seems Ozil will stay with Wender Bremen as he was seen relaxing with his girlfriend. New rumours have emerged surrounding Mesut Özil (21) and his girlfriend Anna Maria Lagerblom (28), sister of Germany singer- Sarah Connor.
