Arsenal Football Club announced today, Tuesday, that Bukayo Saka has signed a new contract with the club.
The contract of the England international – who scored 14 goals and provided 11 assists in 37 games in all competitions this season – would expire next year, but he would remain with the "Gunners" for an additional 3 years (summer 2027).
British media reports revealed that the 21-year-old will earn $19 million per season.
With a simple arithmetic, Saka's income would be:
- 1.6 million dollars a month
- 373 thousand dollars a week
- 53 thousand dollars a day
- $2,200 an hour
- $37 per minute
For his part, Saka said in statements to the club's official website: "I am very happy. There were a lot of negotiations that took some time, but I am here now. I think this is the right club for me, and the right place to take the next step. It is a beautiful club, see where we".
He added, "I think I have everything I need to reach my best, and for that I am happy to stay here, and to be here in the future, because I really believe that we can achieve great things."
"I've seen big changes. I've seen this team and the club grow, and one thing we can be really excited about is that we're on the right track."
He concluded, "It has been a long time since the team participated in the Champions League. I am looking forward to playing on Tuesday and Wednesday in these stadiums, and the atmosphere that will be special."
Saka – who joined the Arsenal Academy in 2008 from Watford Academy – participated for the first time with the Gunners in November 2018, and played 178 matches with the team.
Saka joined goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdal in signing new contracts over the past few days.
Team coach Mikel Arteta said, "It is great for the club that Bucayo has extended his contract. Preserving the best young talents is the main reason for continuing progress, and Bucayo is an important part of our club now and in the future."
