Fabrizio Romano affirmed that Arsenal will certainly stick with David Raya through a long-term contract, because the Gunners, Brentford and the Spanish goalkeeper have all had agreements on this issue before. However, it is still unclear when this deal will be officially announced.
The Italian journalist said:
“I have absolutely no idea when they will announce it, but I am 100% sure that David Raya will be signed on a long-term transfer contract because that is the deal that Arsenal has agreed upon.”
“When Arsenal made a loan deal with an option to buy, the informal agreement (gentlemen’s agreement) between all parties, from the player and the two clubs, was to sign a long-term contract in 2015. 2024.”
“I think it’s just a matter of the clubs deciding when is the best time to announce. In addition, Financial Fair Play is very important, so there needs to be a way to do this deal in the best way possible, but David Raya will be an Arsenal player.”
