According to the Daily Mail, the super brand has decided to terminate its contract with the former Germany international after a seven-year relationship.

It is claimed that Ozil's decreasing status in football contributed to adidas' decision, as has his relations with Turkey president Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who was the best man at his wedding.

It is said that the midfielder's early retirement from international football also did not please the brand, especially as his decision was made after a fallout with the German Football Association.
