Yet another ridiculous article tries to send Bukayo Saka to Man City

We have had rumours linking Bukayo Saka with a move to Manchester City ever since the transfer window began, and every time there is a lack of news around due to the international break or the Queens funeral, there is a resurgence in space-filling articles to annoy Arsenal fans.

During the funeral break there was an outbreak of these idiotic posts, which I highlighted in this post a couple of weeks ago, and today the Mirror is wasting time and space by quoting the ex-England keeper spouting the same old nonsense.

Apparently, James told GGRecon: “I do like what Mikel Arteta is doing at Arsenal and Bukayo Saka is a big part of that, I can, however, understand why players want to move.

“What’s best for Bukayo? Well, if you want to be part of a revolution in a sense, then you should stay at Arsenal as they’re building something and they’ve not won the league for 18 years.

“You’re part of a revolution if you can get Arsenal to compete for the Premier League title, but if you want trophies instantly, then you’re almost guaranteed it if you go to Manchester City.

“I believe he’d be a wonderful addition for Manchester City. I’ve got a lot of Arsenal friends, so I believe he should move to Manchester City.”

What sort of nonsense is that, “I’ve got a lot of Arsenal friends“. Well, if you did have any, you haven’t got them any more.

Oooh these sort of articles get my goat I tell you!!!!

  1. This will continue until a new contract is signed. Same for Saliba.

    ‘Still lots of time to sign”….good old story. We have no power now because we put ourselves in this position. Saka can now demand a huge salary or he won’t extend and other clubs are already circling to pick up yet another Arsenal bargain. Our contract management is superb.

    1. Notable Premier League players whose contracts expire at the same time as Saka, some of these will have optional one year extension but not all:

      Harry Kane
      Phil Foden
      Declan Rice
      Mason Mount
      Wilfred Ndidi
      James Maddison
      Tomas Soucek
      Mateo Kovacic
      Christian Pulisic
      Ruben Neves
      Tyrone Mings
      Jordan Pickford
      Eric Dier
      Davison Sanchez
      Jack Harrison
      Pablo Fornals
      Ruben Loftus-Cheek
      Alex Iwobi
      David Raya
      Demarai Gray
      Che Adams
      Thiago
      Danny Ings
      Daniel Podence
      Kelechi Iheanacho
      Joel Matip
      Kyle Walker
      Callum Wilson
      Victor Lindelof
      Miguel Almiron
      Philip Billing
      Pascal Struijk
      Aaron Wan-Bissaka
      Anthony Martial
      Diego Llorente
      Robin Kock

      Some significant names near the top of the list and many nailed-on starters for the small teams lower down. Arsenal also has Saliba, Xhaka and Martinelli.

  2. Man City have got Kayky to replace Mahrez in the future. Unless they’ll be willing to pay around 60 M for Saka in next summer

  3. James makes an interesting point or two
    Yes, Saka can be part of the project and may want to stay and realise his dreams at his boyhood club
    Yes, he may not care and want to join instead, one of the most successful clubs in recent years and win a trophy
    I don’t know what’s inside his head and neither do I know how long Pep will be at MC. A change of manager may not be an instant success and as things stand at present Saka, hopefully, sees a great future at Arsenal and will want to be settled in a place he knows and loves

    1. Based on the sounds that have consistently come out from the club regarding Saka I would be very surprised if he doesn’t sign a new contract. The next renewal would be when we would have to worry if we haven’t cemented top 4/challenged for titles by then. Let’s say he extends until 2027. He’ll still be 26 at that point, he could also easily push for a move at 24. Given how settled the club is and the fact we appear to be moving in the right direction really wouldn’t make a lot of sense for him to leave right now.

  4. I don’t see anything wrong in him been linked to city especially with his lingering contract situation, arsenal fans makes mountain hill of every situation yo me it’s normal

  5. For commercial money profit making. Ideally, Arsenal can sell any of their reigning star players for a tempting huge money offer. But who wants to leave the club to join another top club side internally or externally to pasture new.
    It’s will not be the first time but the exetra times that the big money bags, Man City FC will be rading Arsenal to price away our star players. And even sometimes in the past, they did price away some from us on the free.
    In a one winter transfer window, Pep Guardiola’s managed Man City tried very hard to sign the then our own Alexis Sanchez for a £60m transfer fee. But the then Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger blocked the transfer from going through.
    So, it may not be last time in which Man City will try to sign one of our top star players. Therefore, Saka could be the next in line for Man City to poach him from us next Jan or summer widow. But if at all they are keenly interested in him to bid for his signature and sign him. But if all things is equaled for Arsenal in the next two transfer windows for a club record transfer fee of £120m
    And the transfer signing fee which I think Man City will pay to Arsenal to get him will depend on the general performance of Saka in the EPL and other competitions this season. More especially the goals scored and assists tally that he has recorded.
    Needless for me to say that Arsenal should reinvest wisely any huge amount of money that they so received to let Saka leaves. And bring in many new better than the Saka that they’ve sold. But if peradventure that it’s happens they sell him.
