Real Madrid star Mesut Oezil is happy with life at the club and has no desire to leave at the end of the season, according to his father.
Several high-profile players have been tipped to leave Real in the off-season, including Angel Di Maria, Fabio Coentrao and Pepe, but Oezil’s family have denied he will be one of those following coach Jose Mourinho out of the club.
“Oezil is very happy in Madrid,” Mustafa Oezil told Marca.
“He loves the club, the city and the fans, which have in all this time been really affectionate towards him. In that way we are really happy. Mesut feels very much at home playing at Real Madrid.”
Despite a consistent season at Madrid, which has included nine league goals and 13 assists, Mustafa still believes his son can improve further.
“Right now he’s playing at a great level, but I think he can still improve,” he said.
“He is only 24, with a long way to go. I’m proud of what he has achieved so far, but he can do even better.”
