Wenger admits Ozil contract talks have 'slowed down' amid Man Utd links

Wenger speaks out on Ozil situation amid Man Utd links

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to open contract talks with Arsenal midfielder Mesut Ozil, whose deal at the Emirates runs out next summer.

Manchester United are the latest club to apparently show interest in the Germany global, with Jose Mourinho previously having worked with the midfielder at Real Madrid. To lose Ozil, and that too to United would be a body blow but to lose him on a free might just spell the end of Wenger's illustrious career - and wouldn't that be the most unkind way to leave a club where you've given your all.

The 28-year-old is believed to have turned down several offers made by Arsenal and is likely to be seeking an exit.

Woman Gives Birth, Attempts To Flush Her Newborn Down A Toilet
Lockner is being charged with attempted murder, causing great bodily injury and assault on the child causing great bodily injury. A woman has tried to flush her own baby down the toilet after giving birth to the child inside a restaurant bathroom.

There are, of course, echoes of the move that took an on-fire Robin van Persie to Manchester United where his goals won the Red Devils the league title the very season he joined them.

Despite not striking you as an archetypal Mourinho player, he arguably endured the best period of his career under the Portuguese in their time together at the Bernabeu.

Should Ozil not pen to paper at Arsenal, and link up with Mourinho at United, he will become the 14th player to have played for Mourinho a few times - with the likes of Nemanja Matic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Ricardo Carvalho, Juan Mata, Samuel Eto'o and Romelu Lukaku all turning out for Mourinho at more than one club. We won past year here [at the Emirates], we won in the FA Cup final, we won on penalties in the Charity Shield.

House Passes GOP Budget Plan
Three Senate Democrats got the Republicans to put a 10-point provision in their budget amendment created to do just that. The Republican's state budget proposal passed in the Senate Friday afternoon, after three Democrats switched sides.

Arsenal exit on the cards? For now, Mourinho has an enviable amount of depth in his attack, especially when it comes to his playmakers, with the likes of Juan Mata and Henrikh Mkhitaryan going strong.

However, it is not immediately clear where Ozil would fit in Mourinho's current attack at Old Trafford, especially as the German has endured mixed fortunes in the Premier League since moving to Arsenal in 2013.

"We have to see about Ozil and Ramsey".
