Mesut Ozil Salary Revealed

Mesut Ozil has got the eyes for assists and is widely heralded as one of the best playmakers in the world.  He started his career with his hometown club, Schalke. After taking the football world by storm in the 2010 World Cup, Real Madrid quickly took him under its wings and gave him a platform to thrive.

Although he had a successful stint in Madrid, the club offered him to Arsenal for $70 million. His playing style is often compared to French legend, Zinedine Zidane. Mesut Ozil also played a starring role for Germany in the recently concluded World Cup, helping Germany clinch their 4th FIFA World Cup.

Like most footballers, Ozil has also splurged the cash on several exorbitantly priced cars including the Ferrari 48 and Audi Q7. When his sponsor Nike dropped him, German giants, Adidas, quickly stepped in to sign the playmaker. Adidas reportedly got his commitment after they offered him a 7 year deal worth a whopping $35 million. The man famously endorses Adidas’s famous Predator line. Besides Adidas, Ozil has also signed lucrative sponsorship deals with Swiss watchmaker, Cyrus Geneve, and candy manufacturer, Kinder Surprise.

The footballer has also taken the whole self publicity thing to a new level. In 2013, Ozil even launched his own logo.
