Carlo Ancelotti ‘asks’ for Arsenal’s “pearl” as Real Madrid plots a €50 million summer transfer swoop for Arteta’s “best player.”
Saka has emerged as one of the Premier League’s most promising young players. It’s impossible to dislike him because of his infectious personality, but he’s also bloody good at football.
In recent years, the 21-year-old has made the right-wing position his own for Arsenal and England. Last season, he assisted on 18 Premier League goals as Arsenal finished just outside the top four.
Arsenal is at a whole new level this season, sitting atop the Premier League. Saka’s performances have also improved, with seven goals and seven assists in 19 Premier League games.

Saka will undoubtedly be crucial in the final months of this season, but his long-term future is uncertain, as his current contract is set to expire in 2024.
Real Madrid is eager to capitalize on this. They claim that Ancelotti has ‘asked for the best of Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal,’ with Saka being the player in question.
The La Liga giants are ‘prepared to welcome’ the winger, and Ancelotti is a fan. Saka ‘would be a great signing,’ according to the ex-Chelsea manager.
Real Madrid had previously expressed interest in Saka, with’very serious speculation about a possible transfer’.
‘Real Madrid can try to take him away from Arsenal, who would ask for a minimum of 50 million euros for their star if they cannot reach an agreement to extend his bond,’ the report continues.
Saka is destined for great things in the coming years, and Roy Keane recently stated that he is capable of playing for Real Madrid.
“For such a young player he has got a lot of experience, he’s already got his hands on a trophy with Arsenal, the FA Cup,” Keane told Sky Sports.

“He has had a big disappointment with England in terms of missing the penalty and he got a lot of criticism from that, but he has bounced back well which is a good sign to him. The key is for the player himself, he looks like he goes out and enjoys the game.
“He seems a really nice lad away from the game, which obviously helps, but when he is playing he can beat a man. When you are playing for the big clubs you need one or two players in your team that can beat a man.
“That changes the picture, it gives you a much better chance of winning football matches. He’s obviously got a lot more consistent, I like everything about him.
“I think any of the big clubs in Europe, he would play for them, I am including Real Madrid. I think he is that good, I think he is fantastic and will only get better.”
