Arsenal: Why we renewed David Luiz’s contract

Arsenal have confirmed that David Luiz, Dani Ceballos, Pablo Mari and Cedric Soares have signed a new contract with the club.

The club in statement confirmed that all four players have agreed to commit their future to Arsenal to help the club finish strong this season and in challenge in seasons to come.

Dani Ceballos whose loan term expires end of June would remain at the club until the end of the current 2019-20 before returning to Real Madrid.

Pablo Mari would reportedly sign a four your contract with the club who are willing to turn his loan deal into a permanent move.

Also, Cedric Soares who has been put injured since joining on loan from Southampton will also sign a permanent deal committing to Arsenal for four years.

And lastly, David Luiz would remain at the club for another season, despite coming under heavy criticism from fans after his show of horror in Arsenal game against City.

But the club’s technical director, Edu said they are happy to have renewed his contract because he is an important player for them

“I am really happy that we will have these players in our squad for the future. They have been part of the long-term technical plan Mikel and I have developed. They bring the right balance to our squad.

“David is a really important player for us. He has played most of our matches this season and has been important for the team. His passing, his communication with the team on and off the pitch. He helps everyone.

“With Pablo we’re all disappointed he got injured at Manchester City. Since Mikel arrived here he was asking for a central defender who was left-footed. We were really pleased with Pablo – his behaviour, the way he is training, his mentality and his quality. Unfortunately, he has that injury but of course we are really happy to keep him for the future.

“Cedric is also going to be an important player. He has been unlucky with the injuries but he is close to being ready and gives us more strength in the right-back position. We’re also pleased Dani will finish the season here. He is making a good contribution and we look forward to him
David Luiz got a year.”
