Like we had a choice, we’ve been offering contracts for years now, this was always their plan. Get a move with a huge signing on fee and 300k a week while having a better chance of winning silverwear. You can either sell like we did with Nasri/RVP or keep them longer and get more out of them. It’s been pretty obvious both were off for a long time now.
I’m not that fussed about either. Ozil hasn’t looked like he wanted to be here for the majority of his and was good for about one 6 month period. Alexis has constantly played selfish football and destroyed team play. They’ll also both be 29 and heading past their primes on huge contracts.
