Chelsea vs Arsenal: Why Willian Wants Three-year Contract

Chelsea winger, Willian, wants a three-year contract because it will make him continue playing until when he clocks 35-year-old, according to Sky Sports’ Kaveh Solhekol. DAILY POST recalls that Arsenal had already made a formal three-year contract offer to Willian. Willian will be a free agent as soon as Chelsea’s Champions League campaign ends this month. The 31-year-old recently rejected Chelsea’s latest offer to sign a new two-year contract at Stamford Bridge. But Solhekol believes Willian wants one big final contract in his career that will see him earn more money. “Willian wants one big final contract – ideally a three-year deal to take him to 35. Chelsea would like to keep him, though they are not going to offer him three years,” Solhekol was quoted by Sky Sp...

Arsenal Players Set for Showdown with Club after 55 Staff are Sacked

Arsenal’s players feel ‘betrayed’ and want to hold talks with the club’s hierarchy, over the decision to propose 55 redundancies to staff, according to The Athletic. The North London club on Wednesday announced that financial struggles caused by COVID-19, will result in some of their non-playing staff being let go this month.  The playing squad and manager took a 12.5 per cent pay cut in April, to safeguard the economic future of the club. However, some of Arsenal’s first-team players are disappointed in the club, as they believed their voluntary wage cut was going to help save jobs. The Gunners’ highest-earner, Mesut Ozil who is on a £350,00-a-week contract, had refused to take the pay cut due to a lack of assurances of where the money was going. The players ...

Arsenal Have Paid Mesut Ozil £8,000 A Minute For Not Playing This Season

Arteta no doubt wishes he could do something similar with Mesut Ozil. The German didn't even make Arsenal's 20-man squad at the Etihad Stadium with the Gunners manager answering 'tactical reasons' when pressed for an explanation. Not many words but it spoke volumes for the absurd situation Arsenal find themselves in with a player who costs them a cool £350,000 each and every week yet doesn't even make the squad for one of the biggest games of the season. With the enforced three-month break promising to throw an element of chaos into the Premier League season, Arsenal might have sniffed an opportunity to inflict a rare defeat on City. And so, logically, you'd want your top earner and by extension one of your best players, to at least be there on the night. But no - Ozil wasn'...

Hernandez is Dynamic Despite his ‘Tactical Deficits’, says Bayern Coach Flick

The French defender has been linked with a move away from Bavaria after a tough debut season Lucas Hernandez still needs to get up to speed with the tactical demands of playing for Bayern Munich following his spell on the sidelines, according to boss Hansi Flick.

‘I haven’t hit my peak yet’ – Bayern’s Lewandowski targets playing career well beyond 35 years old

Robert Lewandowski says the Ballon d'Or is not his focus but that "anything is possible" when it comes to winning the award, while insisting that his best years are still ahead of him. The Bayern Munich striker has never been in the top three for football's most prestigious individual prize, his best record coming when he finished fourth in the standings in 2015. The 31-year-old is likely to be in the running for the 2020 prize, though, having scored 45 goals in all competitions to put Bayern on the brink of another Bundesliga title. Should Hansi Flick's side also win the DFB-Pokal and Champions League this term, Lewandowski would be a strong candidate to become just the second player other than Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo to win the award since 2007.
