The 30-year-old is believed to have left Milan chief executive Ivan Gazidis and sporting strategy & development director Paolo Maldini at loggerheads.
It is understood that the former Arsenal chief executive does not want to bring Ozil to the club, while Maldini is adamant that Milan should recruit a player of his quality.
Chris Eubank Jr, who is in training ahead of his February 23 bout with James DeGale, also found time to appear at the launch.
The Brighton-born boxer is looking to defeat the former IBF World Super Middleweight champion at the 02 Arena, in hope of gaining a world title shot.
