Transfer Totty: As The Özil Turns – UPDATED

Better find a new jar of Nutella, Kickettes, we’ve got some tanned, smooth Turkish-German abs on the menu. Photo via Nordphoto and the Weser Kurier.

UPDATE: Mesut has made a move to Real Madrid!

For those all up in the Bundesliga mix, you’ll be well aware of the ongoing saga with Mesut Özil, who currently plays for Werder Bremen. Will he re-sign with the club? Will he head to the EPL or La Liga? Will he hire us as the qualified belly button de-fluffers the world knows we are? Let’s talk about this.

July 31: An interview with Werder general manager Klaus Allofs says there have been no concrete offers on Özil, and that he is still on vacation in Spain.  Allofs does say that if Mesut decides to leave Werder, they’ve already got enough attacking midfielders.

August 2: Mesut is back in Bremen. Nutella sales rise.

August 5: Weser Kurier speculates that Özil does not look like someone who’s going to leave Werder, as he’s working very hard on the pitch. They also speculate that if he does leave, it’s going to be for England; Allofs states that MO still hasn’t re-signed, though they’ve been trying to pin him down for some time.

You see where this is going, yes? No one, not even Mesut’s left ab, knows where he’s going.

As it stands: although Mr. O still has one year left on his contract, he has yet to sign a new deal with Werder; he was quoted many moons ago about wanting to go to a winning team in the Premier League; over in the winning land of La Liga, Real Madrid and Barca could certainly afford his tanned and toned ab situ, but being the hottest benchwarmer in town is hardly a great option. Just ask Migi.

But wait: Now that Kaká has a knee injury and is out for a while, maybe Real will sign Özil as a replacement?

And: hot Viking Torsten Frings wants him to stay. Who would dare argue?

Weigh in Bundes-gals, do you think Mesut should make a move?

Thanks Emily!

    New update: Supposedly Barcelona had a deal in place but Pep said no, Sir Alex isn’t showing his cards, and now Chelsea is back in the mix?!

  2. Rusty says:

    just an update: I just read an article, I can't remember where even though it was, like, 10 minutes ago, that said that there have been no concrete offers for him so far. K then.

  3. GenniferwithaG says:

    I'm an American and a Man Utd fan, and since he'll never come here, I guess the best I can hope for is that we'd get him in Manchester. The only scoreboard that boy could light up faster than mine is the one at Old Trafford…

    /asks self, "So this is what it's like to want?"

    //shows self out

  4. la reine says:

    Go to barca

  5. pammy says:

    i love this guy. wherever he is. well… we'll see

  6. Cindy says:

    He should go to Real and take me with him!

  7. Rusty, or Anna Maria says:

    There are pictures of SAF at the Fulham-Werder game today. Hmm.

  8. Larissa says:

    I would love to have him in La Liga but he’d just end up being a benchwarmer, so it would be a shame.
    He should go to a team that _really_ needs him
    Which is probably in the premier league.

  9. Alone Albuquerque says:

    Ele tem que ficar no Werder

  10. zahara says:

    i like the way he plays, but theres something i just dont like about him and its not the eyes..cant put my finger on it

    • Rusty, or Anna Maria says:

      well, for one thing, in that picture, he has the same hairdo as my FEMALE dental hygienist.

  11. Ess-Jay says:

    i hope he stays in germany! don't go to england.

    they'll ruin you!!!!!

    plus, you won't get the chance to do amusing little adverts like that nutella one… haha that is an EPIC advert!

    • Witch says:

      I don't think he'll be ruined in England somehow, our league is one of the best in the world. Look what Manchester United did for Cristiano Ronaldo, Ozil would slot right in that team and be well looked after too!!

  12. lulu says:

    Have you noticed this is the year of the umlaut??

    Look it up on youtube. I dare you!

  13. Jenna says:

    i felt like i was being teased watching ozil in the world cup! i just wanted to sign him for liverpool on the spot (same with basti, sami khedira and about half the german squad). how about this – stay in bremen until we get new owners (hopefully that will be VERY soon) then get that little turkish bum over to anfield? deal? deal!

  14. lara says:


    mesut have to stay at home – in germany!
    so i can see him play twice a month live in bremen.

    please don’t go! :D

  15. Sid says:

    I would love for Ozil to move to the premier league, only so that I’d be able to watch him more :D

    Maybe if Fabregas decides to move, Ozil can be his replacement at Arsenal? hmmm..

  16. LoveFootballLoveFoot says:

    ^^^^^^ Perv alert! Perv Alert!

    I find Ozil to be very attractive too. Yes, his eyes aren't as gorgeous as other like my Pique or Yoan but the rest of him makes up for it. Besides, what more can you ask, a beauty when it comes to football and now this tone body?

    As for him movig to another club or not, well, I agree with the ladies that say its better to stay and play than to be on a great team like it would be Real or Barca and just be another benchwarmer. Talent like his shouldn't be wasted.

    • Jackie says:

      Oh his eyes are soooo sexy as with the rest of his features and body! I know where he can smear that Nutella on my body!!!

  17. Jessie says:

    he’s cute besides the bug eyes

    • Cindy says:

      I love his eyes! They are Kermit the frog eyes which I LOVE LOVE LOVE!

    • neenyah says:

      His looks may not be the “dictionary meaning” of handsome but the way he carries himself while playing… Oh man! Boy got some real skillz and some hot swagg. H-O-T.

  18. Alejandra says:

    He needs to take his finely tanned and sculpted Turkish hotness straight to Arsenal. Yes pleeeeease!

  19. Cindy says:

    Seriously, if he goes to Real Madrid they will officially be my most favorite team EVER!

    • JV says:

      I can't say they'd be my favorite, but they'd def. become must see tv. Who would have a better looking starting XI in all of soccer?!

      • blitzen says:

        Well, I could make an argument for Barcelona, but only if you like them small and dark (Villa, Xavi, Bojan) like I do. Plus we have Pique!

      • gretchen says:

        I don't think he should go to real madrid since he's very young and you know in real madrid, kinda place for big boys. I mean Mesut is most likely going to be benched and not being the first team. Yeah, it's better that he's staying in Bremen for some time then if he's mature enough, he can join the big boys :)

  20. Jennifer says:

    The REAL Turkish Delight :D

  21. I really do find him attractive! Something about him is very appealing. He just works for me…

  22. Zinny says:

    I really like Ozil. Not primarily for his looks but just how he plays and how he carries himself. I don't think he should go to Barca, because then he will surely become a benchwarmer. However, a premier league transfer (or maybe even Real. Maybe.) would do wonders for his career.

  23. Jackie says:

    I dont know why but I love this man. He should go to Real because he'd fit in well and he'd be very useful

  24. neenyah says:

    The way Ozil plays, he reminds me so much of a young Kaka. So a move to Real is not that far from reality.. Although I will feel really bad for Kaka coz he'd be missing a lotta games (again!!).

    Since I am a Barca fan, I'd love him to wear our colors but the team needs a defensive midfielder more. Also talks of Cesc transfer (prolly next season?)… Ozil might just be benched. : s

    From Bremen's POV though, I think they would sell him before he becomes free agent at the end of the season, which will be an opportunity loss for them.

  26. Cindy says:

    If Ozil goes to Real I would be soooo happy!

  27. tash says:

    hope he stays at Bremen; I think that would be best for his career atm

  28. He's abs-olutely delish. If only he would come to Liverpool. Unlikely, but it's nice to dream!

  29. Rusty, or Anna Maria says:

    must not stare at Oezil's underwear…must not stare at Oezil's underwear…have to go print out a bus ticket because I don't have a working printer…must not stare at Oezil's underwear…

    Dude needs to stay at Bremen and get some more seasoning. Or Nutella flavoring, if you will.

  30. HiL says:

    As a Werder fan i hope he stays for at least another year.

    and if not.. come to Man United! :P But Bremen needs him more.

    Anyways if he makes a move, i hope it is to England.. Spain does not worth him. :P

    • Rusty, or Anna Maria says:

      HiL, I've heard many a hysterically funny rumor about his going to ManUtd. I take them with a grain of salt and maybe a slice of lime.

  31. Rose says:…
    Enrique xD

    Sorry it has nothing to do with this post but whatever xD

  32. Witch says:

    I hope he comes to Manchester United (or stays at Bremen), we need him more than any other club mentioned in this saga!

  33. gillyrosh says:

    Yummmmmmmm! This was just what I needed to wake up to this a.m.

    If MO came to Real Madrid, I would be in HEAVEN!
