Mesut Ozil to Manchester United? Club website suggests he’s on his way

Transfer coup or just wishful thinking?

Manchester United employed an unorthodox method of revealing new signing Mesut Ozil from Werder Bremen yesterday, by publishing a “player profile” for the German World Cup star on their website. Either that or the cyber defences of the world’s most valuable club have been circumvented from the bedroom of a spotty teenager with a sense of humour.

I’m not sure which series of events I’d rather believe, but after the way Ozil’s been talking about Barça like he bleeds red and blue, I’d suggest Old Trafford street-sellers sit tight before investing in a job lot of googly-eyed goggles.

    already been covered and this is a day too late- the profile is nothing more than a simple glitch that;s been created purely because of transfer rumour. other profiles of non-existent united signings can also be found, and many date back from years ago.

    Ya, If you just change the numbers at the end of the web address, you will find profiles for benzema, Ballotelli, sneijder and others!

    Complete hoax!
