After finally reaching an agreement with Legia Warsaw, over the transfer of Krystian Bielik, details of the deal that would take the 17 year old to North London has began to emerge. Arsenal initially had two bids rejected for the starlet, however, several reports emerged about Arsenal’s transfer negotiator, Dick Law trip to Warsaw on Tuesday to finalise a deal for the defensive midfielder. After several haggling over the transfer fee, a compromise has since been found on the following terms.
Both Arsenal and Legia Warsaw were some miles apart in the way they wanted the deal to be structured, as well as the final terms of the deal. The Poles wanted 2.5 million Euros plus 1million euro bonuses to finalise it, or an outright 3 million euros without need for a bonus. While Dick Law offered 1million euros in addition to another 1million euros in bonuses.
The above terms was what brought about the agreement that would see Krystian Bielik finally join Arsenal.
The confirmation of the terms of the agreement was also carried by Polish publication, Przeglad Sportowy who also went to town when they further revealed that an agreement has indeed been reached between both clubs after Dick Law’s intervention on Tuesday. The final decision now lies with Krystian Bielik since both clubs have thrashed out a deal.
The player’s wages have also been agreed as was reported by a number of publications in Poland. He is expected to earn 104, 000 pounds annually which comes to 2,000 pounds per week. Which is considerably higher than what he is currently on at Legia Warsaw. A report puts it at four times higher than his present wages.
With both fee and wages agreed, the coast is effectively clear for the transfer to be finalised. Although, Hamburg late entry into the fray could have added a new twist into the transfer, as Bielik still has an offer on the table from the Germans. However that should not pose much of a problem as he confirmed that his mind was already set on a move to Arsenal. “I’ve made a decision and I’m not going to change it. I am looking forward to an agreement between the heads of the clubs”
With that, it should be a foregone conclusion that he is joining Arsenal after a deal between both club’s was reached on Tuesday.
An announcement should not be far away, after the turn of events that have taken place in the last four eight hours.
