Arsenal’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang contract hope
Arsenal forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is looking to extend his contract, according to Julien Laurens.
The Gunners star has entered the final year of his current deal but is willing to commit his future to the club.
“More good news for Arsenal fans after the new contracts for Saka and Martinelli: talks are positive and moving forward with Aubameyang,” Laurens wrote on Twitter.
“He wants a 3 year deal and £250k a week. He wants to stay. The club wants him to stay. Negotiations continue.”
Jadon Sancho to Man Utd
Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has an agreement in principle on a five-year contract with Manchester United, according to Ian McGarry.
McGarry told The Transfer Window Podcast: “It is our understanding that Sancho has agreed in principle in the last two weeks a five-year contract with Manchester United which will pay him initially £140,000 per week but increasing to around £200,000 per week over the course of that deal.
“The player’s agent has recently been busy doing other deals, notably with Saka’s new deal with Arsenal but is still hopeful that United will be able to agree a fee with Borussia Dortmund.
“Manchester United have been rather robust in a briefing this week that they will not pay any more than £50m for Jadon Sancho which of course is at least less than half of Borussia Dortmund’s original valuation of the England international.”
