Club trigger option of second year in centre-back’s contractGabriel Martinelli faces long spell out after injury in training
David Luiz has extended his stay at Arsenal until the end of the 2020-21 season after the club triggered the option of a second year in his contract, putting an end to speculation that his spell would conclude this month.
The Guardian understands the centre-back, who is among the club’s highest earners and had been considered vulnerable to their precarious financial situation, has accepted the offer to continue with Mikel Arteta’s side. Barring any unforeseen late hitches before Tuesday’s midnight deadline he will stay on the books until next June, when he will be 34.
