MANCHESTER CITY AND BUKAYO SAKA TRANSFER LINKS
According to reports, Manchester City are monitoring the situation of Arsenal winger Bukayo Saka. The report also claims that Pep Guardiola sees him as a long-term replacement for Raheem Sterling. Hence, it looks like City management rate Bukayo Saka very highly. A potential move to City can also be beneficial to Saka. The England international will get to play Champions League football every season.
A number of reports also claim that Pep Guardiola views the Arsenal winger as his dream signing. However, it is going to take a miracle to have Bukayo Saka available for transfer. Mikel Arteta has already said that the winger is not for sale under any circumstances. However, a potential opportunity can open up if he rejects the contract extension offer from Arsenal.
ARSENAL HAVE TO SORT OUT THE CONTRACTS OF THEIR YOUNG STAR PLAYERS
The report also claims that the Gunners are looking to extend the contracts of Gabriel Martinelli and William Saliba. However, like Saka, they are yet to find a full agreement with them. Hence, the owners will have to secure the future of the young stars. The potential contract extensions of the trio should be the best news for Arsenal fans in the January transfer window.
These contract extensions are also important for Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta. It is because the main core of the team are these young stars. Hence, the Gunners will have to sort out the contracts. The report also claims that Bukayo Saka is demanding 210,000 pounds per week. This demand is three times his current salary. Hence, they will have to break their wage budget for their young stars.
Arsenal will hope to continue their great form this season. Hence, they will hope to continue to have positive results on and off the pitch. Therefore, the contract extension of their young stars is one of the most important objectives for this January transfer window.
