Latest Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang contract news offers some clarity

The story of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s future has so many twists and turns and until he signs a new deal or leaves the Emirates, the rumours and stories about his intentions will not stop.

The Gabonese attacker is currently in talks with the Gunners over a new deal, but a breakthrough hasn’t been made.

The club has made it clear that their priority is to keep hold of him beyond his current deal that expires in 12 months’ time.

The attacker has also dropped a number of hints that he would like to stay, but he hasn’t put pen to paper yet.

The latest on his future coming from The Athletic claims that the striker is happy at the Emirates and he enjoys working with his teammates and manager, however, he knows that Arsenal is in the early stages of a rebuilding project and he doubts if he will be with the club long enough to enjoy the fruits of his labour.

The attacker is already into his 30s and he will feel that this is the right time for him to join a top side, that he will be guaranteed winning trophies with.

The Gunners have reached this season’s FA Cup final and they will hope that winning the competition will prove to him that they are on the right track towards winning trophies again.

    What I see in all these, is that Aub is bidding his time till the outcome of the FA Cup final. Like any quality players, whose yearnings, aspirations & ambitions is to win trophies in their domestic leagues -real trophies for that matter, leading to their playing in Europe & carting away the available trophies there as well, in addition to earning handsome wages . Unfortunately, however, time is not on the side of Aub. Since winning the FA Cup final will see Arsenal playing in Europa, a less lucrative Cup though, Aub may hopefully be enticed to extend his contract beyond next season, a win/win scenerio for Arsenal. But if on the other hand, we fail to lift the FA Cup, come Sat, it will be difficult to see Aub staying beyond this season, unless Arsenal is ready to loose him on the free next season, ie a loose/loose situation. We must therefore brace up for worse situation without taking it on Aub, as we did with other players in the past, whom faced with similar scenerio, opted for the latter. We should there4 be prepared to show empathy & respect to whatever decision Aub might come up with, after the FA Cup final.

      True. That could happen only, if Özil would accept a paycut. Sorry to say this.
