Arsenal have just offered new contract to their £158k-a-week man after claims Barcelona want him

After Barcelona began to show interest in Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta, the Gunners have offered the Spaniard a brand-new contract to extend his stay at the club.

The 41-year-old has developed into one of the best managers in the Premier League. He has truly revolutionised Arsenal, and his work has not gone unnoticed. Barcelona want him, but it’s unlikely they’ll get him.
Arsenal offer Mikel Arteta a new contract after Barcelona interest

Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez announced last month that he would be stepping down as the manager in the summer.

The Spaniard won the league title at the Camp Nou last season, but his side have struggled this time around. He seems to have had enough and will be leaving at the end of the campaign.
Barcelona, like Liverpool and Bayern Munich, are now on the hunt for a new manager. Spanish outlet Sport have claimed today that Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is on their radar.

However, the Catalans have been informed that the 41-year-old is never going to force himself out of Arsenal – even if it means to manage Barcelona.

The biggest revelation in the report, however, is that Arteta has a new contract offer on his table. Stan Kroenke and Arsenal’s board don’t want to lose their main man, who has done a spectacular job since taking over from Unai Emery.
The report adds that it would be really ‘strange’ if Arteta decided against extending his contract, which suggests he will put pen to paper.
Extending Mikel Arteta’s contract is a no-brainer

Mikel Arteta has turned Arsenal into one of the best teams in the world.

The Gunners are challenging for the Premier League and Champions League titles this season. They are such a good side and are capable of beating any other team in Europe.

Arteta is the biggest reason why Arsenal are where they are right now, which is why it would be stupid of Stan Kroenke and KSE to not hold onto him.

The £158,000-a-week (GiveMeSport) Spaniard will enter the final year of his contract this summer, but we expect him to extend his deal in the coming months.
