Aubameyang wants £300k per week

Should we pay Aubameyang £300k per week?

Pro:
A proven goal scorer that will get you 20+ league goals per season.
Irreplaceable with any new buy of his calibre will cost Arsenal a minimum of £50-million in transfer fee (if they wanted to join a mediocre club for 3 or 4 seasons) and will demand in the region of £250,00 pw salary.

Do your sum, which is the more economical "more bangs for the buck spent" option?
A proven striker that will deliver?
Or a jump into an unknown and ended up with another expensive "Nicolas Pepe"?

Best option is to extend his contract to 2021/22 season paying him £300,000 pw (gross including performance-based bonuses) starting next 2020/21 season, with Arsenal holding the option of one-year extension to 2022/23 season.

Con:
His age and like Ozil, may lose his hunger being satiated with his huge salary and pick and choose when he will show up to play.

Other than that, my belief is that it is the best option to extend his contract to 1+1 year.
This will buy time for Arteta to develop Martinelli, Nketiah, John-Jules, Balogun and other young new buys in readiness to step in to challenge Aubameyang during 2021/22 season.

Conclusion:
Retain Aubameyang is the best option to give time for Arteta to stabilise the team for 2020/21 season and starting to implement at full speed his vision of what Arsenal should be during the final stage of his rebuilding process.

Of course, if Liverpool or ManU or Chelski or Real or Barca or Juventus or Inter or Milan tables a serious offer and matches Arsenal selling price, can Sanllehi resists the lure or will it turns Aubameyang's head?

Bye bye Aubameyang if he reaches that much. This is just paper talk. Everybody is underestimating the financial impact on something as non essential to life as a football match did to this outbreak.

Nobody is going to get this kind of money because sponsors will also be making losses not mention to club.. Don't be surprised if there is a percentage decrease in salary for all new contracts post the outbreak.

Post corona virus will not be paying 300K pw
Problem we will need a decent striker or learn how to share the goals around



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

300k without CL football??? 😂😂😂 Nice try. Off you go Auba. Not anymore. After the stupidity of Ozil's wages, we would be fools to fall for this again. Not when we have Martinelli coming up the ranks.



Wenger Is Gone Now So Can We Be Allowed To Breathe Now???

Even without Martinelli I don't think we should pay him that.

Nobody is going to pay him that. Things will be drastically different in 3 months time.. Ppl won't be able to go to games and revenues will fall.

You also need to understand, crude has gone below 30$ per barrel and is headed towards 5. Oil money is not going to flow in, like it used to. This is part and above the fact that emirates and etihad airways are going to suffer tremendous losses.

We are headed to a full blown recession and it will take some time before the pea brain footballers realize where the world economy is headed.

He will settle for a contract way below 300k if he has any brains in 2 months time

Maybe Aubu knows this already, and will be happy to stay at Arsenal on a reasonable salary. Ozil should offer to take a pay cut too.
