All the Premier League clubs have agreed to extend David Luiz’s Arsenal contract by another 12 months.
Many of Arsenal’s rivals were hoping for a slightly longer contract, with 6 years being touted by one former Tottenham player.
Luiz’s agent, Peter Thape has been recognised by the Association of Football Agents and given an outstanding performance award for securing the extension.
‘I asked the manager for another 12 months, and then crouched down waiting for him to throw stuff at me,’ said Thape.
‘Not sure if Arsene would have gone for that?’ asked Thape.
