Arteta set for new contract to end Barcelona links

Barcelona’s genuine interest in Mikel Arteta is apparent, but it’s reported that the Arsenal manager is likely to renew his contract with the Gunners.

According to Sami Mokbel’s report in the Daily Mail, Barcelona is genuinely interested in Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta. However, there is confidence among those at the Emirates Stadium that Arteta wouldn’t be swayed by such an opportunity.

All involved parties are reportedly calm regarding Arteta’s contract, even though it expires in 18 months. It is believed that Arteta will prolong his contract, and he was surprised by speculations suggesting he might depart prematurely.

Mokbel concludes that Arteta is dedicated to leading Arsenal to significant trophy victories.

The initial rumor originated from the Spanish outlet Sport, stirring up trouble by suggesting that Arteta was contemplating terminating his contract with Arsenal at the end of the season. Sport claimed that Arteta had informed his close circle about this decision, linking him with a potential move to Barcelona.

However, Sky Sports later reported that Arteta has no intention of leaving Arsenal, with no plans to depart at the end of the season.

On Monday morning, the Evening Standard reiterated that Arteta has no intentions of departing from Arsenal in 2024, reaffirming his commitment to the Gunners.

Arteta then spoke out publicly to deny the claims, saying in a press conference: “No, that’s totally fake news what you read yesterday.

“I don’t know where it’s coming from and it’s totally untrue. I’m really upset about it.

“I could not believe [it] I don’t know where it’s coming from and it’s got no source, it’s got nothing. I think we have to be very cautious when you talk about personal things to put it in the way it was put yesterday.

“That’s something that we cannot control [the rumours linking him with Barcelona], this is part of football.

“But that’s something very different to someone putting a statement about something that I’m doing [leaving Arsenal at the end of the season], that’s very very different.”
