If he leaves it will be a far bigger loss than Alexis leaving and not just because of his quality.
Looking back right before we signed him and the whispers that we were in for him it was such a crazy exciting time, we were all on cloud nine. It was like the club was truly moving forward and symbolised everything we'd hoped for. Looked as if to usher in a new dawn, we weren't just making superstars, we could also buy them too. It's doubtful we would have signed Alexis if not for Özil being here already.
So if he does walk, which lets face it seems more likely than not then he's taking that hope with him that came when he arrived, and it says so much about the sorry state of the club that it will genuinely be painful to watch unfold.
