This summer, Arsenal have been very busy due to the changes that have happened at the club. But, one factor that has gone under the radar a little bit, is the contract saga of Jack Wilshere.
The midfielder’s contract is up this month and he still has not made a decision. For many months now, there has been talk of him staying but nothing has been finalized.
The saga reached its conclusion as Wilshere dropped a major hint on social media. This can be an indication as to what he wants to do for the future of his career.
The player posted a story on Instagram which said the following:
“There comes a time when you have to choose between turning the page and closing the book.”
The North London club have already made a £100,000-a-week offer to the midfielder last month. Though this does not say anything definitely, it could be considered that he is leaving. As far as the fans are concerned, it would be better to get this resolved as quickly as possible.
If he does leave, it is safe to say that many fans will be sad to see him go. Wilshere has been at the club his he was a child and it is obvious to see why the fans have a connect with him.
At one point he was one of the most promising youngsters in the world. But a spate of injuries halted his progress. It curtailed his ability to get back to the form that was evident in his earlier days.
The last season seemed to be a make or break season in many ways. There were a lot of glimpses of the Wilshere of old but they were few and far between.
He has been linked with many clubs including West Ham and Juventus. It is safe to say that wherever he does go next, he will have the fans rooting for him. If he is leaving, it is sad to see him unable to fulfill his potential at his boyhood club. Let us hope that the Wilshere saga reaches a conclusion that is favorable for all involved.
