Saka Pledges His Future to Arsenal Until 2028
A few months back, Sami Mokbel of the Daily Mail first reported on Saka’s verbal agreement with Arsenal. This new agreement could see the player earning a staggering £15 million a season, inclusive of bonuses and other payments.
As per the Daily Mail, the contract guarantees a minimum of £10 million per year, which translates to a weekly wage oscillating between £192,000 and £288,000.
Fabrizio Romano has added that this deal would tether Saka to Arsenal until 2028, reaffirming the club’s faith in the young talent.
No doubt, Saka’s stellar performance in the 2022/23 season helped sweeten the deal. His stats boast 14 goals and 11 assists in all competitions, earning him a place as one of Arsenal’s Players of the Season and a regular spot in various Premier League Teams of the Year.
With the ink now dry on the contract, the next chapter for Saka unfolds with a taste of Champions League football next season. This 5-year contract surely solidifies Saka’s status as an essential pillar for Arsenal’s future aspirations.
