Mesut is one of four children of Gulizar and Mustafa Ozil, and is a third generation Turkish-German. His interest in soccer dates back to his early days in elementary school, when he competed in several youth leagues. Between 2000 and 2005, Ozil was a member of Rot-Weiss Essen, and played in the fourth-tier Regionalliga West. He turned pro in 2005 when he joined Schalke 04, where he spent the next two seasons, appearing in 30 games, and which provided the basis for Ozil’s currently rather impressive net worth.

At the beginning of the 2008 season, Ozil transferred to Werder Bremen, signing a $5 million playing contract, and by the end of the season, he was already its key playmaker. Positioning himself among the Europe’s top young talents, he caught the eye of several top teams, such as Real Madrid, Barcelona, Arsenal and Manchester United, so in August 2010, Mesut became a member of Real Madrid, for a fee which was estimated at $15 million, and where he spent the next three seasons during which he won several major titles, including the Supercopa de España and La Liga title. It is certain that all these accomplishments helped Mesut Ozil to significantly enlarge the total of his wealth.

In September 2013, Ozil joined Arsenal Football Club, signing a five year playing contract with an estimated worth of $50 million, earning the distinction of being the most expensive German football player to that date. Since then, as the backbone of Arsenal’s midfield, he has won three FA Cup titles, in 2014, 2015 and more recently 2017. Doubtlessly, all these accolades have helped Mesut Ozil to increase the total of his revenues by a large margin.

Apart from his club career, Mesut Ozil has also been serving as one of the key players of Germany’s national squad since his debut appearance in the national colors back in February 2009. Since then he won the 2014 World Cup, as well as the 2017 FIFA Confederations Cup Champions Title. All these accomplishments have helped contribute to Mesut Ozil’s total wealth.

Mesut Ozil’s autobiography entitled “Gunning for Greatness: My Life” hit the bookshelves in March 2017, which will also no doubt contribute to his rising bank account.

When it comes to his personal life, Ozil was in relationships with Anna-Maria Lagerblom between 2009 and 2010, as well as with Aida Yespica in 2010. Between 2013 and 2017 he was dating singer Mandy Capristo, while he is currently romantically connected to a former Miss Turkey, a model named Amine Gülşe, to whom he is now rumoured to be engaged.
