Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta dismissed reports linking him to Barcelona, calling them “fake news” during a press conference. He expressed frustration and disbelief over the rumors, stating that he is committed to Arsenal and upset by the unfounded claims. Arteta emphasized his satisfaction with his current position and urged caution regarding personal statements taken out of context. The reports emerged after Xavi Hernandez announced his departure from Barcelona at the end of the 2023-24 season. Arsenal is currently in third place in the Premier League, and Arteta’s contract with the club runs until 2025, with both parties reportedly relaxed about discussions for an extension.
