Angry Arsenal recruit, Saliba could return to France

From every indication, Arsenal’s new recruit William Saliba would be returning to France to play in the French Cup Final with Saint Etienne against Paris Saint Germain.

The Gunners snapped up the player in a £27 million deal last year and allowed him to stay back on a loan deal which expired on June 30.

As a result of the Coronavirus pandemic, the French league was not concluded but the French Cup final has now been scheduled for July 24.

The French club have approached Arsenal for the player to return for the final game and it was initially agreed but conditions for William Saliba to return were not reached between both clubs, causing fracas.

The latest report now claims that William Saliba is really upset with the decision by Arsenal to turn him down and has already approached the club’s managing director Vinai Venkatesham, a development that could force a rethink and a new negotiation.

Should everything go fine, Willaim Saliba could still return to France for the final game before starting his Arsenal career ahead of the coming season.

The North London are very keen on the welfare of the defender, knowing his injury records and they are keen on ensuring he gets fit to start the season with the team.
