One of the top summer targets of Manchester City is Paul Pogba of Juventus but trying to sign the French player is very difficult as he is also being targeted by a number of top European clubs including: Manchester United, Chelsea, PSG, Barcelona and Real Madrid.
Taking into consideration just how complicated it will be to sign Paul Pogba, Manchester City are already searching for a backup option and one of these backup’s is Arsenal’s Jack Wilshere.
Manchester City are believed to be preparing an offer of around €40 million in order to tempt Arsenal in selling Wilshere but the English player might be out of the reach of Manchester City as well because Arsene Wenger is not interested in releasing one of his most promising young figures.
The French manager Arsene Wenger is viewing Jack Wilshere as the future of Arsenal’s central midfield and will attempt to secure his services for as long as possible. Even at his young age, Wilshere is already one of the candidates of becoming the captain of Arsenal in the near future.
Jack Wilshere currently has a contract with Arsenal which extends until 2018 and he is earning €60,0000 but a pay raise is expecting to be given to him within the next few weeks as a way to motivate Wilshere to keep on playing at the Emirates Stadium and not have any interest of joining any other clubs despite how tempting their offers might be.
This is not the first time that Arsene Wenger has had to keep hold of some of his players as Wenger tried to maintain at his control CescFabregas and he managed to do it for a few years but eventually the time arrived when the Spanish midfielder wanted to make a move to Barcelona in order to have a better chance of winning major trophies.
The urge of lifting important pieces of silverware is something that players want to do and want to accomplish, Wenger is hoping that by increasing the pay raise of Wilshere, the player will stay at the Emirates Stadium for a longer period of time.
