EPL: Mikel Arteta clears air on Arsenal selling Aubameyang

Published

on

Arsenal boss, Mikel Arteta, has denied the club will sell captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in the January transfer window.

Aubameyang has gone six games without a goal since Arsenal’s 3-1 win over Aston Villa in October.

Reports had emerged that Arsenal would seek to sell the 32-year-old due to his current form.

Asked if plans were afoot to part company with Aubameyang, Arteta said at his pre-match press conference ahead of Arsenal’s Premier League tie with Southampton on Saturday: “We have never discussed something like this.

“When players are in difficulty, we must give them our support.

“Obviously, when a player is not scoring, it’s affecting his confidence, it’s affecting the mood and probably the belief, but you have to rebel against this situation, don’t accept it and feel sorry for yourself.

“It’s all about patches, every player has patches and moments, and it’s about trying to make the big moments and the good moments and the form when a player is scoring goals to try and maintain it, and try to reduce the time when they don’t.”

Salah overtakes Ronaldo as Premier League’s highest-paid player with new deal

Published

on

Mohamed Salah’s new £400,000-per-week salary at Liverpool has made him the top earner in the Premier League, according to Daily Mail.

The Egyptian has ended speculation about his future, by putting pen to paper on a bumper deal until 2025.

Salah is now ahead of Cristiano Ronaldo (Manchester United) and Kevin De Bruyne (Manchester City), who are on reported salaries of £385,000-per-week.

City’s new striker, Erling Haaland, is close behind on £375,000-per-week, the same wage as United goalkeeper David de Gea.

Salah, however, ranks as the fourth highest-paid footballer in the world.

The 30-year-old’s wages is dwarfed by those ahead of him, all of whom play for Paris Saint-Germain.

Neymar comes in at third-place with £606,000-per-week.

Lionel Messi took a pay cut when he joined PSG from Barcelona last summer, but he’s still on a stunning salary of £960,000-per-week.

Messi was the biggest earner in the world until a few weeks ago, when he was overtaken by team-mate Kylian Mbappe, who signed a new three-year contract with the Ligue 1 side reported to be worth £1million-per-week.

PSG to offload Messi

Published

Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly planning to offload forward Lionel Messi this summer, according to Spanish journalist Pedro Morata via PSG Talk.

Messi joined PSG last summer from his boyhood club, Barcelona.

The Argentine captain failed to live up to expectations, scoring just 11 goals from 34 games across competitions for PSG.

The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, though, has shown signs of a revival over the summer.

Messi was outstanding for La Albiceleste in the last few games, scoring goals for fun and winning the Finalissima.

However, it appears PSG have run out of patience with Messi.

PSG’s new sporting director Luis Campos is planning a squad revamp and is also ready to axe Messi.

Youri Tielemans

Arsenal have agreed on personal terms with 25-year-old Leicester City midfielder, Youri Tielemans.

This claim was made by respected Journalist Ben Jacobs.

According to Jacobs, Arsenal have ‘put in a heck lot of work’ to secure a deal for the Belgium international.

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Ben Jacobs was quoted as saying: “Arsenal have put in a heck of a lot of work into Tielemans.

“They have agreed personal terms, and their talks with Tielemans date back for the best part of a year. But for whatever reason, Arsenal have decided not to swoop just yet and actually table a bid with Leicester City.

“And if they do so, and agree a fee at the lowest end £25 million, at the highest end £32 million, they will get Youri Tielemans.”
