Arsenal triggers automatic extension to another star’s contract

Arsenal has triggered an extension to Bukayo Saka’s contract as they negotiate a new long-term deal for the England international.

Saka has been one of the best players in the world in the last year and proved his class at the World Cup for England.

His current deal signed in 2020 was initially for three seasons, with the club retaining the option of extending it by a further year.

The Daily Mail reports they have taken up the extension and he will now stay with them until the end of next season, at least, while they continue to work on a new long-term deal.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Saka is arguably the most valuable player in our squad now and we cannot allow him to leave for any reason.

The attacker is leading us towards an unlikely Premier League title and he deserves to be the highest-paid player at the club if he asks for that.

Saka is guaranteed to keep improving because he has the right attitude and works hard on his game to remain in top shape.

Hopefully, he will not suffer any serious injury and will continue to play many games for us because we look like a better team when he is on the lineup.

  1. Triggering of automatic extension is a delay tactics that might backfire if not properly handled. I suspect there’s something wrong with some of these players contract extension that’s causing delay. It is either from the club or the players (with their agents).
    Questions like do these players have their minds elsewhere? If so, the triggering of extension will put the club in a position to make more pay come during their sales.

    If it’s about their earnings, the club should consider the risk of replacement. Clubs like Liverpool have proven in recent times that a club can let go with their big players and get better players for the team. The sales of Suarez, Sterling and Coutinho come to mind.

    Among the young players Arsenal is trying to give a new contract, Saka is the most consistent quality wise. So supposing the earnings is the problem, if the club can give him something close to what G. Jesus is earning, it won’t be out of place.
