Arsenal ‘delay Mikel Arteta contract talks amid Paris Saint-Germain interest’

According to reports, Arsenal have postponed discussions about extending Mikel Arteta’s contract in order to concentrate on their efforts to win the Premier League.

Arteta, who took over as Arsenal manager in December 2019, is aiming to lead the team to their first league title in nearly two decades.

Arteta’s excellent work at Emirates Stadium has resulted in speculation about a potential contract extension.


Despite signing a new deal that runs until 2025 and includes a pay raise of more than £3 million per year, the Arsenal leadership is concerned that Arteta is attracting interest from some of Europe’s top clubs.

There are rumors that Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) are interested in re-signing one of their former players. However, there is some uncertainty surrounding the manager’s position at PSG.

Christophe Galtier, who was appointed as PSG’s manager last summer, is expected to leave at the end of the season after the club’s early exit from the Champions League.

While Manchester City and Barcelona are not expected to pursue Mikel Arteta in the immediate future, they do see him as a potential manager for the long term. Despite Arsenal’s desire to extend Arteta’s contract, The Sun has reported that contract negotiations will be put on hold until the conclusion of the title race.

The competition between Arsenal and Manchester City for the Premier League title is expected to be fiercely contested until the end of the season. Arsenal relinquished a two-goal lead for the second consecutive game during their 2-2 draw with West Ham United on Sunday.

Despite this, the Gunners have a four-point lead over Pep Guardiola’s team, who have a game in hand.

Arsenal’s next match is against Southampton on Friday, followed by a crucial match against Manchester City. If Mikel Arteta can lead Arsenal to the Premier League title, it would undoubtedly enhance his negotiating power in future contract discussions.
