Here We Go: Graham Potter’s Chelsea future, Bukayo Saka’s Arsenal contract talks, Man United and Barca latest

The Chelsea situation continues to be of concern because the results are still pending and Graham Potter’s position is becoming less and less stable. So far, the club is sticking with the idea despite the loss to Tottenham – Todd Boly is confirming Potter as head coach because the idea is a long-term project with an English manager, as happened with Mikel Arteta at Arsenal two years ago. But the situation will have to change in the coming weeks, otherwise we are already starting to feel the first cracks of a possible break with Potter, who will have to give important answers very soon. Time is running out.

In the Premier League, Arsenal have reached an agreement with Bukayo Saka on a new contract that runs until June 30, 2028, and he is just waiting for the final details to be finalized and the paperwork to be signed because Saka never considered leaving the club. Negotiations with William Saliba are also ongoing, but the parties have not yet reached the final stage on this issue. Granit Xhaka will be next to negotiate a new deal.

Manchester United will push for talks with Marcus Rashford. In this case, it will take time to conclude a deal, there is no immediate agreement yet, but a deal with Alejandro Garnacho and his representatives is very close. He is expected to sign a new contract with Manchester United by 30 June 2028. In any case, the club will explore options for a new centre-forward. So far, Napoli have not given the opportunity to set a price for Victor Osimhen, who is valued by many clubs, but Napoli want him past what should be a historic season as the team run away with the Serie A title.

Juventus are working on a new deal for Alex Sandro until June 2024 thanks to an option already in the contract. Now the club is ready to extend the agreement with the Brazilian left-back, and Inter is one step away from agreeing new terms with Hakan Calhanoglu. Milan are also optimistic about the extension of Olivier Giroud until 30 June 2024 and negotiations are progressing well.

In Spain, Barcelona continue to look to Benjamin Pavard as a defensive option because the French centre-back will not renew his contract with Bayern and Real Madrid are waiting for Toni Kroos’ decision. The German midfielder has to decide whether to retire or continue for another year. Madrid will not deal with any other club because he always wanted to end his career at Real Madrid.
