Werder Bremen midfielder Aaron Hunt believes Mesut Ozil has done nothing wrong by joining Spanish giants Real Madrid.
Hunt said Ozil has made the move in order to advance his career, and not for financial reasons.
"He's not going to Real because of money," Hunt told German newspaper Bild. "Real is the most famous club in the world, so no one should label him. He wanted to take the next step, and I wish him luck."
The 23-year-old has admitted he may one day follow Ozil out of the Weserstadion, and he would be interested in a move to England.
"I've only just renewed my contract but at some point this is an option," he said. "Part of my family comes from England, and the Premier League appeals to me."
