Mesut Ozil wants to stay at Real, amid interest from Arsenal and United.
Germany international Mesut Ozil has ended speculation he could join Arsenal or Manchester United this summer by stressing he has no intention of leaving Real Madrid.
The signing of Isco and imminent arrival of Gareth Bale in the Spanish capital have led to suggestions that Ozil could seek an exit from Real this summer, with the Premier League duo reportedly keen on the 24-year-old’s services.
But the playmaker has insisted he is happy at the Santiago Bernabeu and has no plans to leave the club.
“I feel really good at Madrid,” Ozil said. “I have a contract here until 2016. I feel very good here and get on really well with my team-mates. I want success here.
“There has been a lot written in the media, talk of some other options, but I have a contract and I am staying with Real Madrid.”
Ozil also said he is confident he will adapt to the new system implemented by head-coach Carlo Ancelotti, who replaced Jose Mourinho this summer.
“I feel very good, I have the confidence of the coach,” he said. “There is a series of objectives that we want to achieve, in which each one will have a role to play. That is one of the reasons why I want to stay.
“We are very happy, we have won our two games, we have taken six points. It is true that we need to play better, but there is a long way to go.”
The former Werder Bremen man said the Real squad must be targeting silverware this term after Mourinho’s tenure ended in a trophyless season.
“When you play for a team as important as Real Madrid, you must win trophies,” he said. “We are going to do everything we can to win. It is true this is a club with special players, and I am convinced we will win trophies.”
