Mesut Ozil Fenerbahce contract revealed as ex-Arsenal ace takes 80 per cent pay cut & will earn less than Cedric Soares

MESUT OZIL will earn £67,000-per-week at Fenerbahce – which is 80 per cent less than he raked in at Arsenal.

The midfielder, 32, has agreed to take a £283,000-per-week pay cut to join the Turkish giants this month.

Mesut Ozil is set to sign for Turkish giants Fenerbahce on a free transfer

Ozil was paid £350,000-per-week at Arsenal despite being frozen out of the first-team.

But AS claim he will sign for Fenerbahce on a three-and-a-half year deal worth £3.5million a year.

The transfer will see Ozil earn just 20 per cent of what he has been used to in North London.

He will pocket less than the likes of Cedric Soares, who earns £75,000-per-week at Arsenal.

But it has been revealed that he could land £670,000 in bonuses alone this season.

He will be handed an extra £445,000 if he helps Fenerbahce to a first league title since 2014.

As things stand, Erol Bulut’s side are level on points with Besiktas at the top of the table.

The Turkish giants are also amid their second season on the bounce without European football.

A return to the Champions League would see new boy Ozil pocket another £222,000 bonus.

The playmaker has reached an agreement with Emirates bosses to terminate his deal early.

He was set to earn around £7million between now and the end of his contract in June.

But he jetted straight to Istanbul on Sunday after he was given permission to sign for the Super Lig club.

Ozil is expected to undergo his medical and complete his free transfer to Fenerbahce on Friday.
