According to a report, Manchester City will stop entertaining offers from Arsenal in the future.

THE LOWDOWN: DOUBLE SWOOP

Arsenal made a big statement in the summer when they snapped up Gabriel Jesus from Manchester City for a huge amount, despite the player being in the final year of his contract.

As if that wasn’t enough, the Gunners went ahead to get Oleksandr Zinchenko from the champions. Now, both players have played pivotal roles in Arsenal’s rise to the summit of the league.

Given the impact the duo have made in the past few months, Manchester City have decided to make a big transfer decision.

THE LATEST: MANCHESTER CITY’S DECISION

According to Football Insider, Manchester City are set to reject any future offers from Arsenal for their first-team stars.

The Premier League champions sold Gabriel Jesus and Oleksandr Zinchenko to the Gunners in the summer. That move has seen the North London outfit become Christmas champions with 12 wins from 14 games.

With Guardiola’s contract set to expire in 2023, Manchester City reportedly want Arteta to replace Guardiola, but that may only happen after a few years now. The Arsenal gaffer is already growing a strong impression within the club’s ranks and continues to insist he is happy at the Emirates Stadium.

THE VERDICT: PAINFUL FOR CITY

Both players were not outright starters at City but they have been able to prove themselves in an environment that allows them to thrive.

They could be the difference in the title race in months come, but at the moment, they are justifying the fees paid for their services already.

However, this news can only be taken with a pinch of salt as it is impossible for City to claim they won’t sell to Arsenal simply because of two players.

Business will remain business at the end of the day but perhaps the Citizens will now be more cautious about who they sell to their direct rivals.
