Fake Agent Tried To Sell Ozil To United

Manchester United’s transfer window activity remains shrouded in mystery.

First, there was confusion on deadline day, after men claiming to represent the English champions tried to sign midfielder Ander Herrera from Athletic Bilbao.

Herrera later claimed that he had not even spoken to United, while the club insisted they had no idea who the lawyers allegedly negotiating on their behalf even were.

Then United bought Marouane Fellaini from Everton, for more money than they knew they could have paid to sign him just three weeks previously.

And now the Red Devils feature in another bizarre transfer story.

Mesut Ozil’s father and agent, Mustapha, has filed a charge against another agent who falsely claimed to represent the player during transfer talks with United.

Ozil signed for Arsenal on transfer deadline day, but not before rumours emerged that he was in talks to join United from Real Madrid instead.

Apparently, an unknown agent had forged Mustapha’s signature on a document, enabling him to begin transfer talks with Manchester United.

But Ozil senior insists that neither he nor his son negotiated with United, and that he will now take legal action against the imposter.

“I would have never deemed it possible what some dodgy people venture to do,” Ozil told Express.

“Someone wanted to make contact with Manchester in my name and even signed with my name. That is no trivial offence. We will get to the bottom of it.”
