Arsenal warned that Messi situation could threaten Aubameyang deal

Piers Morgan has urged Arsenal FC to speed up proceedings over a new contract for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, amidst speculation surrounding the future of Lionel Messi.

The Argentine forward has rocked the footballing community this week by telling his club that he not only wants to leave with immediate effect, but wishes to trigger a clause which was written into his deal which would allow him to leave for free, with the Mirror having found a supposed copy of the sax which he sent to the club.

Unfortunately for the forward, that clause has since expired, and while his legal team are set to argue that the Coronavirus pandemic interfered with the timeline of the campaign, which had an affect on his decision, I struggle to believe he will get away with forcing a free transfer.

Saying that, the player’s wish to leave the club will likely remain, especially whilst the current president is in charge, but it remains to be seen whether any change could lead to a change in Messi’s stance.

With so much uncertainty surrounding the situation, Arsenal fan Piers Morgan has told our club to push forward with tying Aubameyang down to his new deal, with our star striker having previously talked of his intention to play in Spain, as well as play for Barcelona specifically, telling L’Equipe (via AS) of his promise to his grandfather previously..

The Sun recently quoted Aubameyang from social media that he was yet to be given a new contract to sign by Arsenal, which did not go down well with supporters, with reporters having claimed a deal was all-but wrapped up.

Could Messi’s Barcelona saga have a knock on effect on a number of clubs, and could Aubameyang be viewed as a potential Messi replacement?

    Barca won’t sign a 31 years old player to replace Messi.

    He can only replace Suarez .

    Why would any decent player want to go into this current Barca set-up. It’s a mess and I personally don’t rate Koeman as a coach of any quality.

      Wendy, er, um, how shall I put this gently…. MONEY! It is the main reason all players go anywhere. Not the only reason but the PRIME one!

        They lack money at the moment. If they cannot raise funds from departures, it will be a form of Arsenal.

          I mean if Messi go with others, they will have room for Auba or other but at the moment they won’t add high wages.
          And it would be a big hit if Messi went for free.

    Piers Morgan is not exactly most Gooners cup of tea and certainly not mine. But he is a bright man and sees future possibilities in a way, though in an outspoken and somewhat irritating way but nevertheless an accurate way, that not many other see so soon. Timing changes planned events, as life proves all the time, and he is right to warn about hurrying Aubas new contract. I DO NOT LIKE MORGAN but I respect his intellect!

    Piers Morgan is an idiot and should keep his mouth shut. No Arsenal fan ever wants to hear him or cares what he says. Auba and Messi do not play the same position. I don’t understand why Messi leaving Barca impacts Auba in any way.

    1. ozziegunner says:

      Impacts Auba, if Messi leaves, because it frees up a lot of money!
      However, why would Aubameyang join Barcelona to win things when the club is in disarray?
