With a transfer fee of £42.5m Mesut Ozil becomes the third most expensive signing in British football history, behind Fernando Torres, who joined Chelsea from Liverpool for £50m in 2011, and Carlos Tevez, who cost Manchester City £45m. The 24-year-old Mesut Ozil has agreed a five-year contract, which is worth a basic £150,000 a week (NZ$300,000 per week), with bonuses on top, having completed a medical earlier in the day in Germany, where he was preparing with his national team for the World Cup qualifier against Austria on Friday.
