Arsenal has always been a club that knows how to keep secret. This
was why Arsene wenger talked about maybe having a surprise for fans
after the derby match against tottenham.
The truth of the matter as revealed on goal.com is arsenal begun
negotiations with real madrid for ozil last week but the deal rested
on madrid's bale's confirmation. Tottenham dragged their feet on
bale's transfer so as to weaken arsenal who would not be able to
register him ontime before sunday's match.
The deal became advanced to the point that ozil visited arsenal's
london colney training ground last week for the first part of a two
tier medical. The deal eventually happened after another medical took
place in munich.
