“I think he will not play football in any other club any more. I can’t see that – it will be Fenerbahce and that’s it,” Ozil’s agent Dr Erkut Sogut told The Telegraph in June.
“He will go more into esports, play himself and maybe become an esports athlete. He’s really good, to be honest, at Fortnite and I think one day I wouldn’t be surprised if he is competing. He owns a team – M10 Esports – and he has players. He has a gaming house in Germany. He has football, like Fifa, and Fortnite.”
Istanbul, who recently announced the loan signing of former Manchester United starlet Adnan Januzaj, have not announced the termination of Ozil’s contract at the time of writing.
