Net Worth & Market Value

Net Worth:42 Million Euro (36 Million Pound)
Market Value:27.5 Million Euro (24 Million Pound)
The midfielder has been playing professional football for more than 10 years, most of these years at 2 of the biggest teams in the world. As such he has made a massive amount of cash. We have calculated and estimated and his net worth should be somewhere around 42 Million Euro (36 Million Pound). His market value is obviously on the decline, given the fact that he has now passed the 30-year-old-milestone. He is still locked up at Arsenal untill 2021 and we dont think he is going to have another massive transfer awaiting him. Nevertheless he could still prove to be a vital part of any top teams attacking play for a few years to come. We expect his market value to be at 27.5 Million Euro (24 Million Pound).

Player Bio

Mesut Özil is a German playmaker who is currently playing for Arsenal in the English Premier League. He is widely regarded as one of the best attacking midfielders of his generation. The German of Turkish descent started his career at his hometown club Schalke 04. After playing in Gelsenkirchen for 2 years he made the move to Werder Bremen. There he developed his skills to such an extent that was being viewed as a very promising prospect, he was around 20 years old at the time. His real break-through moment was the 2010 FIFA World Cup, where he played a huge role in Germany's succesful run that stranded in the semi-finals (Germany were beaten by later world champions Spain). After that tournament he made the move to Real Madrid, where he played for 3 full seasons before being transfered to his current team Arsenal. At Real he won the domestic La Liga title one time and his connection with Superstar Cristiano Ronaldo was remarkable. The German provided the most assists to Ronaldo during his time in the Spanish Capital. His time at Arsenal has not always been extremely succesful. He has been a regular starter for the team but his lack of effort on defense has more often than not been critized. He has yet to win the Premier League but he did manage to win the FA Cup three times over.
