Ozil Set To Terminate His Arsenal Contract And Move To Fenerbache

The 32-year-old still has half a season left on his Arsenal contract but both parties are in advanced talks which they expect to lead to an agreement to terminate it.

He joined the club in a £42.4m move from Real Madrid in 2013 and helped them win the FA Cup three times. Ozil spoke of his admiration for the Turkish side during a social media question-and-answer session during the week. "Fenerbahce is like Real Madrid in Spain. The biggest club in the country," he told followers. Media reports in Turkey earlier this month claimed Fenerbahce would be signing Ozil in January. And when ...

Ex-Everton And Real Madrid Ace Completes Transfer Just Weeks After Bankruptcy

Cadiz 2-1 Barcelona: Blaugrana’s away woes continue with Negredo winner

Cadiz beat Real Madrid in October and delivered another upset on Saturday as Lionel Messi and Barcelona lost in Andalusia. Barcelona's miserable away run continued as Cadiz claimed another big scalp with a 2-1 win on Saturday. The Blaugrana are now winless in four on the road in LaLiga - their worst such run since May 2008 - and a dismal defensive mix-up gifted all three points to surprise package Cadiz. Alvaro Gimenez struck a scrappy, contentious opener with just eight minutes played, but the promoted side, who enjoyed a stunning win away at Real Madrid earlier this season, were pegged back by Pedro Alcala's own goal before the hour mark.
