All season Arsene Wenger has been saying that Jack Wilshere will be given a new Arsenal contract and it would all be sorted before Christmas, but then he strung us along some more and told us that discussions would be done in early January. But now Wilshere himself has told us that the complete opposite is true and that Le Prof had told him to find another club in last summer’s transfer window.
A market has opened up with various prices on Jack’s club come the summer, and you may profit from picking up a canadian bonus code before making your selection, although the England international doesn’t appear set on his exit just yet.
“It was an honest conversation,” Wilshere said.
“We have known each other long enough where we can have that relationship where we are honest with each other.
“It was boiling up for a while because everybody knew I had a year left on my deal and I had been out on loan, got injured, and wasn’t really in his plans.
“He said, ‘I am going to be honest with you and at the moment we are not going to be offering you a contract, so if you can get a contract somewhere else, you can go’.
“Obviously I was not happy with that, but at the same time I was happy he was being honest.
“He gave me the opportunity with three or four weeks left in the transfer window, but I did not find anything that I wanted and at the same time I was not really fit, so I decided that I wanted to stay and build up my fitness.
“He also said at the same time that if I did stay I had an opportunity to fight for my place, and if I performed well in the Carabao Cup and Europa League, I had a chance.”
So the question is, has Wilshere done enough to earn a new contract now? And if so, why hasn’t he got one? Everyone thought that Jack was being disloyal by not signing, and in fact Wilshere himself kept telling us that he wanted desperately to get an extension all through the season as well.
The bottom line is that now it is too late and Jack will definitely get a better offer elsewhere, especially if he has a great World Cup, and Arsenal are going to regret not re-signing our newest Mr Arsenal.
What a bloody shame!
