It’s not a good deal. He is going against everything he stands for. He thinks he is leaving on a high with the fans but really he is running away from a challenge if he leaves. I’m angry with him.
Also angry with Arsenal. If they were open to giving him a 4 or 5 year deal he would’ve taken it without hesitation. He wants a long deal.
Maybe the point was never to play in the CL. But to get Arsenal back in it. Some people rather walk away when their work is done, instead of reaping the rewards and enjoying the prize.but why did he prolong, then suceed and leave when CL is finally, finally there. he leaves for leverkusen who most likely wont play CL and are a much smaller team.
is that for his family? if so, respect.
Uhh maybe he’s just being smart and realises that Arteta will try to move beyond him soon anyway and buy a new 8, so accepting a 5 year deal from Leverkusen is pretty sensible. Pull yourself together man.
i wouldnt be against it although even in that scenario i'd prefer to keep xhaka for another year.Why not? If we want to be an ambitious football team we have to be signing big players.
Not at all. We can buy 10 players but Xhaka will always fight for his place, competition doesn’t disturb him.
He simply wanted a 4/5 year new deal but Arsenal weren’t interested. He got that at Leverkusen.
I've said it other places but this is the summer to go big. No guarantees of CL football 2024-25. No guarantee we will be as attractive. Get the best you can now to ensure it.i wouldnt be against it although even in that scenario i'd prefer to keep xhaka for another year.
If he truly loved the team, he would have stayed and agreed for 1+1 contract extentions.
If Xhaka feels unwanted by the club and manager he will leave.
The midfield general is leaving, never thought Arteta would let him go, but as I said he is becoming an arrogant and megalomaniac.
@BergMan mate do not be sad, I think if the club does not want to extend him, this is better for both parties. He will enjoy playing for Alonso.
Much as he's been great the last 2 years, we'd be insane to give him a 5 year deal. Sucks, but in 3, 4 & 5 years time he's very unlikely to be at the level we need, particularly if we maintain our improvement.No, at first to play with his brother, in his late late 30’s. Then he will start coaching.
That’s after Leverkusen.
He wanted a long deal at Arsenal, Arsenal never wanted to give it to him. He got 5 years at Leverkusen.
