Born in Gelsenkirchen, West Germany on October 15, 1988. German professional football player, Mesut Ozil has earned an estimated net worth of $50 million. Ozil initially started in youth leagues back in his elementary school and from there he proceeded to play for Rot Weiss Essen for five years. He then moved on to play for Schalke 04 as senior footballer. In 2008, he joined Werder Bremen following a dispute between the team’s management. There, he became one of the key players and his performances with Germany at the 2010 FIFA World Cup in South Africa brought him more success. Many teams became interested in him but he finally decided to join Real Madrid, where he displayed excellent and unparalleled performance. Ozil made a switch to Arsenal for the club’s record fee of £42.5 million and has been a key figure at the Emirates stadium. After Germany won the World Cup title in 2014 he donated financial aid for 23 sick children to have operations in Brazil. Each German player reportedly earned at least 300,000 euros after their meaningful 1-0 victory over Argentina in the final of World Cup and Ozil used this reward and his success to support those in need.
