“I just enjoy my football”: Arsenal star Bukayo Saka insists he leaves no uncertainty about his future despite Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich
- Bukayo Saka sparkled for Arsenal in an extremely tough season
- Saka was a constant threat to Arsenal, as they beat 4-0 on Sunday
- The 18-year-old now has eight assists for the season – more than any teammate
- He has caught the attention of Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich
Arsenal star Bukayo Saka maintains that he is not distracted by the uncertainty surrounding his future, despite his contract situation in which he gladly warned Liverpool, Manchester United and Bayern Munich.
The 18-year-old, left behind by Mikel Arteta, posed a constant threat in their 4-0 win over Newcastle and created the goal of Nicolas Pepe with nice footwork.
His current deal, worth around £ 3000 a week, expires at the end of next season and Arsenal has started a new contract to secure him for the long term.
Bukayo Saka has been a shining light for Arsenal in an extremely tough season
Saka’s situation has attracted attention both at home and abroad, but the younger insists that he focus solely on his performances.
“I leave all those things to my agent and my parents. I just enjoy my football and play my football, “he said after Sunday’s victory.
“They solve it. Of course I enjoy my football, enjoy playing under the new coach, so we’ll see what happens. “
Academy product Saka broke through for the first time under Unai Emery. But he has shone under Arteta in recent weeks – despite playing deeper than he used to.

“I really enjoy my football under the new manager. It is not my natural position, but he gave me all the advice I need, “Saka said.
“I learned a lot about how Premier League wingers play against defenders … I feel that my dream has always been to be a winger, to influence matches, to score goals and to get assists. For now I will do the job that the manager asks me. “
After another great performance against Newcastle, Saka now has eight assists for the season – more than any teammate or another teenager from the Premier League.
“It is an honor to have the most assists on this team, because we have a great talent and I learn so much from it every day,” he said.

‘If I go back to the grand piano in the future, I feel like I know how full backs play and play like a full back. I know what wingers do, what I like to do and what I don’t like. To do. It is a good learning experience for me. “
The win over Newcastle brought Arsenal to six points in fifth place, which could be enough to secure Champions League football after the European ban from Manchester City.
“This will really give us the push we need. It gives us a lot of confidence, “Saka added. ‘It shows that we can do it, we can score goals. We just have to shut up and we can score goals. As long as we keep playing like this, we win games. “
