Although a long time has passed, his name still remains as the highest wage earner in team history.
The details of Bukayo Saka’s recent contract extension with Arsenal have been revealed. British media outlets such as ‘The Sun’ and ‘Daily Mail’ said on the 28th (Korean time), “Arsenal gave Saka the best treatment in the team. An extension contract with a weekly wage of 300,000 pounds (approximately 480 million won) I signed with Saka. I recognized Saka as the undisputed ace of the team.”
Saka is a winger representing the England national team and the Premier League. He joined Arsenal in 2018 and as a result of his step-by-step growth, he was reborn as a leading striker from last season.
He was first on the team in scoring and assists last season with 11 goals and 7 assists. He has improved further this season with 12 goals and 10 assists.
He is number one on the offensive point team. Arsenal took the biggest stake in running first in the Premier League this season.
This kind of Saka is not the best player in Arsenal’s history. Saka is in second place. Number one is Mesut Ozil, who was at Arsenal from 2013 to 2021.
Ozil is a midfielder who dominated world football in the 2010s. He was Arsenal’s signature star, and he lifted the 2014 Brazil World Cup championship cup in the German national team. He once enjoyed a splendid heyday, posting 19 assists in the Premier League in a single season.
In 2018, Arsenal gave Ozil a £350,000-per-week contract extension. However, after that, Ozil fell endlessly, followed by the stigma of ‘eating and running’. 먹튀검증
After Özil, Arsenal did not offer mega-contracts to players for a while. However, Saka prepared to renew the contract early.
Saka also made his intention to remain clear. Winning the Premier League is just around the corner, and the situation is going to the UEFA Champions League next season. There was no reason to kick Arsenal’s offer.
Above all, Arsenal offered the highest weekly wage since Ozil, putting a wedge in Saka’s stay. Arsenal coach Mikel Arteta also gave strength to the club’s leadership by making a special request to renew the Saka contract.
