Arsenal Banter brings you latest update on Arsenal news from top media sites like Daily Mail, Metro, The Express, The Independent, The Telegraph, SkySports and so on.
Arsenal have so far been inactive in the winter transfer window which still makes one wonder if the club do need any reinforcements.
As far as the latest reports in the media are concerned, the Gunners are mainly interested in securing the futures of their current crop of stars.
Recently, the Manchester Unired club have officially agreed a one year extension with Belgian international Marouane Fellaini, reportedly to be interested in a move to Arsenal.
Moreover, a report according to the Sun claimed that 24-year-old Jesse Lingard has also agreed a new four year deal with the club.
Now, The Sun have claimed that the Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho is going to activate the clause in David de Gea’s current contract and give him a bumper pay rise as well. Currently, the Spanish international earns £180,000-a-week and his contract will expire in 2019.
As per the provided Sun link, United are ready to extend his contract next summer and then he will be making £200,000-a-week, £31.2million (€36million) until 2020.
The former Atletico Madrid star is arguably the best goalkeeper in the world and has won United’s Player of the Year award for a record three successive seasons. He surely deserves a new deal more than anyone else.
