Real Madrid CF claim Arsenal FC new signing Mesut Ozil 'could not stand the pressure' in Spain

Real Madrid president Florentino Perez has denied claims that Arsenal's new signing Mesut Ozil was forced to leave the Bernabeu in order to fund Gareth Bale's arrival, claiming the playmaker "could not stand the pressure" at the club.

Ozil joined Arsenal on transfer deadline day at the start of the September, with his £42million departure from Real not going down well with the club's fans.

Many of Ozil's former team-mates were also disappointed to see the Germany international leave, but Perez insists the player’s departure was his own decision.

"Ozil asked to leave the club and nobody here should be upset about it," he told Bernabeudigital.com.

"He could not stand the pressure of Madrid."

Perez also dismissed claims by Barcelona defender Gerard Pique that Los Blancos' summer spending spree was funded by Spanish bank Bankia.

"What Pique has said is not true," he insisted.

"He is a good guy and we should not focus on this point.

"The club paid for the player, with no assistance from Bankia or any other financial institution."
