Arsenal fans in the Transfer Tavern have got a new round in to celebrate what they believe to be a fantastic piece of business, improving their side significantly in the long-term.
The 29-year-old has developed into one of the finest full-backs in the Premier League and has cemented his future with Arsenal, keeping the Spanish international tied with the North London outfit until 2019.
Monreal has become an integral part of Arsenal’s back-line in the past 12 months and will be a crucial part of whether the Gunners are successful in their quest for the Premier League title this season, which has eluded the North London side for the past 12 years.
The former Malaga full-back has made over 100 appearances for Arsenal, scoring in the Premier League and the FA Cup, and has become a cult hero amongst the fans in North London.
Our landlord believes this signing is a major statement of intent from Arsene Wenger’s side, whilst the fans hope it signals the way for a number of other first-team stars to follow suit.
Arsenal fans, how big a deal is this!? Let us know in the comments below!
