The details of Mesut Ozil’s contract were leaked recently and revealed that Real Madrid have a buy-back clause for the player who is currently having the season of his life for Arsenal.
Mesut Ozil seems to be making up for lost time this season after having a lukewarm start to his career at Arsenal, having racked up 16 assists and 5 goals this time around. Allegedly, his contract was recently leaked revealing a buy-out clause and all the details of his big money move from Spanish giants Real Madrid.
According to Skyports, “The contract, which is unverified, shows Arsenal paid an initial fee of €44m (£33.5) when they signed Ozil in September 2013, with the fee rising to a maximum of €50m (£38m)”
In addition to the initial fee, apparently Arsenal have to pay an extra 1 million in 6 installments which will be paid each time the Gunners qualify for the Champions League group stages after July 2014.
The Buy-back clause
Real Madrid have an option to buy back the German play maker, according to the leaked reports, but it will depend on whether Arsenal are planning to sell him to another Spanish club. If the Gunners decide to sell him to one of Los Blancos’ rivals then they will have to disclose all the details to them. Real would then have 48 hours, or until noon, London time, on the final day of the relevant transfer window, whichever comes first, to decide if they wanted to match the offer. Also, should a Spanish club snap up Ozil for more than 50 million Euros, Real Madrid would get 33% of the profit.
Neither clubs have made any comment on these revelations.
