 ‘I know’: Spanish legend discloses whether Mikel Arteta would leave Arsenal for Barcelona 

It appears that numerous prominent managers are set to depart from their positions by the end of the season. Is there a possibility that Mikel Arteta might also be on his way out of Arsenal?

Jurgen Klopp is slated to depart from Liverpool, and Xavi Hernandez will be parting ways with Barcelona due to their respective challenges both on and off the field.

This has led to speculation about who will take over as the next Barcelona manager. Could Mikel Arteta possibly return to his roots?

Sources close to the club have indicated that those at the Nou Camp hold a favorable view of the former midfielder, even as Arsenal seeks to secure him with a new contract.

When questioned about why Mikel Arteta would consider leaving Arsenal for the Barcelona job, former Spain and Barcelona forward Luis Garcia emphasized that any manager worldwide would covet such a prestigious role, as he explained to ESPN.

Unless the current manager in Arsenal’s dugout signs a new contract, speculation about his departure at the end of the season will continue to swirl within the footballing community.

However, Luis Garcia is confident that if the opportunity arises, it will be seized upon, even if the current Barcelona managerial position appears precarious.

Mikel Arteta at Barcelona

On why Arteta would want to manage Barcelona: “I know you think that managing Barcelona could be a dangerous position or it’s not a good way,” said Garcia.

“But I can tell you that any manager in the world, or most managers in the world, if there is a ring from Barcelona, then you are going to get it. The potential work you can do in the future. I am not saying right now you are very happy because of what you have got.

“I just think you can do so much good for the future with this team. You are talking about one of the biggest clubs in the world. I think any manager would be happy to get that job.”

Mikel Arteta and the Premier League title

There is undeniable acknowledgment that Arteta has orchestrated a significant turnaround at Arsenal. When he initially joined, the club was mired in chaos, and their decline persisted for years. 

However, he gradually lifted them out of that slump, implemented a defined style of play, and now they are contending near the summit of the league.

Nevertheless, if Arsenal fails to clinch the Premier League title this season, it’s plausible that some fans may grow impatient with their manager. 

Despite securing the FA Cup under his leadership, there’s a sentiment among supporters that with significant investment made, it’s imperative for Arteta to start delivering tangible results commensurate with the club’s ambition.
