New Emirates shirt deal positive, but must help the necessary squad rebuilding

New Emirates shirt deal positive, but must help the necessary squad rebuilding

Sports
So, out of nowhere really, with no rumours doing the rounds about such a deal, Arsenal announced an extension to the shirt sponsorship with Emirates yesterday. A five year lengthening means they’ll be kit sponsors until 2024, and of course the airline retain the naming rights of the stadium until 2028 aside from that.

Interestingly, the club have not released the financial details of it, and when I asked they said there were no plans to go into the specifics. However, via the back chan...

As per a report from Spanish outlet Don Balon this afternoon, Spanish giants Barcelona are prepared to offer up both players and cash as part of a summer bid for Atletico Madrid star Antoine Griezmann.

Man City plotting big money deal for South American, fans will be delighted - originally posted on Sportslens.com Manchester City are looking to offer their Brazilian keeper Ederson a ‘stunning’ new long-term deal at the club.
