Ozil open to Premier League
Germany star Mesut Ozil has revealed he would be open to a move to Manchester United or Chelsea.
Ozil, 21, has been one of the stars of the World Cup so far and, with only one year remaining on his contract at Werder Bremen, there have been suggestions he could be set to move on this summer.
"The World Cup is all that matters at the moment," he told the Sun. "When I get back we can think about my future, but for now it's not something I want to give a lot of thought to. To the top players, the Premier League is attractive.
"You look at what Manchester United and Chelsea have achieved over the last five years and you see it would be easy to be successful at two clubs like that. I see what Michael Ballack achieved at Chelsea and the quality of players he played with and the temptation becomes obvious.
"Trophies are what matters to me. There are two teams in England always at the top and of course that's attractive, but the same is true for La Liga. They're the strongest leagues in the world."
Barcelona are also believed to be interested in Ozil but his agent, Reza Fazeli, earlier played down suggestions of a move to Camp Nou.
"Mesut Ozil has been a fan of Barcelona for many years but at this point in time he is fully focused on the World Cup," he said. "There is nothing else interesting from his point of view. And, of course, he has a contract to go at Werder Bremen until June 2011."
