In preparation for moving to Barcelona? Reports suggest Arteta will leave Arsenal!

The newspaper “Sport” caused a huge surprise after it reported that Mikel Arteta would follow in the footsteps of Jurgen Klopp and Xavi Hernandez.

On Friday, Klopp announced his departure from Liverpool at the end of the season, then Xavi came out on Saturday and confirmed that he would also leave Barcelona next June.

According to a report by the Spanish newspaper, Arteta also informed Arsenal management of his departure from the Gunners at the end of the current season.

The Spanish coach’s contract with the London club is still extended until the summer of 2025, but the team’s decline this season and some disagreements with management may hasten his departure.

“Sport” confirmed that Barcelona has not yet contacted Arteta, but if his departure is confirmed at the end of the season, an attempt may be made immediately to sign him to succeed Xavi.

Joan Laporta has always expressed his great appreciation for Arteta and his technical abilities, and on more than one occasion considered him the ideal choice to coach Barca in the future.

It remains to be noted that some of the English newspapers that reported the Sport news denied it, and it is assumed that the full truth will be revealed in the next few hours.
