Report: Monreal signs new contract

31

Reports from Spain say that Nacho Monreal signed a new contract with the club which will keep him in North London until 2019.

Radio Marca say that the deal was signed this week but the club have yet to decide when it will be officially announced.

Monreal has firmly established himself as the first choice left-back ahead of Kieran Gibbs, the quality and consistency of his performances this season have been outstanding. It’s hard to think of a better left-back in the Premier League right now.

His contract was due to expire in 2017. Obviously we’ll take it as good news but as yet unofficial.

  1. New times indeed. Instead of losing our best players, we keep tying them down left-right-center! Mind you, he has leadership qualities such as calmness and sportsmanship (every Arsenal player has this anyways, except Debuchy!). A hardworker and creative as well for a LB. More to follow please!

    • Because the club work to the club’s schedule, not Marca’s?

      Because there are some final matters to tie up before its ready to be announced?

      Because they want to do have one big presser to announce his new contract alongside Eleney’s signing and possibly the return of TGSTEL?

      Because Arsene Wenger is personally trolling you?

  2. I’ve never understood transfer rumours about Arsenal being willing to sell Monreal. Hopefully now those stupid rumours will stop!!

  3. Awesome. Now we should tie down Bellerin ASAP! I can imagine the Barca vultures are already circling, what with the “DNA” and all that crap…
