the Daily Briefing - Chelsea to look for January opportunities, update on Man Utd's interest in Gakpo and Sesko, and more

My exclusive Daily Briefing, featuring today's top stories on Chelsea, Man Utd, Arsenal, Barcelona, and more!

Happy Monday everyone and welcome to my latest Daily Briefing - enjoy!

Today’s top stories:


What a result for Arsenal yesterday as they earned a thoroughly deserved 1-0 win against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge.

Mikel Arteta: “Saliba and Gabriel were outstanding, both. They did great job again.”

This was a very impressive win for Arsenal. They have a fantastic defence, really. William Saliba is already a world class player, Gabriel Magalhaes is doing fantastic and they trusted both of them during the whole summer.

Also Ben White and Oleksandr Zinchenko are playing at top level. I’m not surprised because they were really convinced of the project since day one.

Arsenal already extended Gabriel’s contract until 2027 after rejecting two approaches in July. They’re now working on Saliba’s new deal as the main priority alongside Bukayo Saka and Gabriel Martinelli.

Can Mikel Arteta’s side really stay at the top of the table? We’ll have to wait and see. But even if they don’t go the distance in the title race this year, the future looks very bright for Arsenal.

It was emotional to see a legend like Gerard Pique bring his playing career to an end, but what next for the retiring defender, and what will Barcelona do to replace him?

For sure Pique dreams of returning to the Nou Camp in a different role in the future, but he has not decided anything now, it’s too early.

As for Barcelona, they will look for new centre-back in January, they have multiple names on the list - Inigo Martinez from Athletic Bilbao is one of them, but not the only one.
