Barcelona have major reservations over signing Mesut Ozil due to their bad experiences with Arda Turan, potentially leaving the path clear for Manchester United to sign the Arsenal contract rebel.

The Catalan club have been heavily linked with a January move for the German World Cup winner, with Catalunya Radio even claiming the two camps had agreed a three-and-a-half-year contract.

But now Barcelona-based newspaper Sport have suggested those rumours are premature and insist the club are still unsure about progressing with a deal for Ozil.
