#Football: David Luiz Offered New Arsenal Deal, After Agreeing Wage Slice


By Alex Acha (AGENDAWATCHDOG) – David Luiz was offered a new deal at Arsenal because he agreed to a significant reduction in his salary.

The club’s decision to give Luiz a new contract earlier this week was met with criticism following his error-strewn performance against Manchester City earlier this month.

Arsenal’s financial struggles, made worse by the coronavirus crisis, had raised the possibility that the Brazilian had played his last match for the club.

Arsenal’s executives had spent much of the past few weeks trying to work out whether they could afford to offer Luiz a new deal, before it was announced that he would be staying, along with Cedric Soares and Pablo Mari, who has been signed for an initial £7 million.
