Mesut Ozil’s agent, Erkut Sogut, arrived in the United States on Wednesday to hold talks with DC United about a possible move, the Washington Post reports.

Sogut met with club executives Jason Levien and Sam Porter, to discuss the possibility of Ozil moving to MLS early next year.

The group had lunch at the Navy Yard, toured the Audi Field and planned to visit the future site of the United training center in Leesburg, Virginia.

They also watched a second division match at Segra Field, the newly opened home for Loudoun United, owned by DC. United had tried to move around Ozil this winter, and it is understood that next summer is more realistic.

Ozil, who turns 31 in October, is among the ten highest-paid players in the world, with a base salary of approximately $ 24 million. The German player joined Arsenal in 2013 and is under contract until 2021.
