Arsenal has moved from talking about playing football in the Champions League to considering itself among teams battling relegation from the Premier League.
Mikel Arteta’s team has started this season well, but with seven defeats in the last 10 league games, we can’t help but consider the possibility of relegation from the Premier League at the moment.
Arsenal is considered a great team in England and that explains why their annual budget is around 150 million pounds.
That money is bigger than the budget of every other team in the bottom half of the league table.
Since the possibility of relegation is now very real, Sun Sports says Arsenal have protected themselves from such a possibility and that most of their current players will reduce their current salaries by 25%.
Arsenal have been shown to save £ 37.5 million from such deductions, but that will still be the main budget for the England second-tier team.
The report says Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang is currently the joint biggest earner at the club with £ 350,000 paid to him weekly.
That money will be reduced to £ 262.5 thousand a week if the gunners do not survive the fall.
Willian will see his job shrink from £ 220,000 a week to £ 165,000 a week, but that will still be a lot of money to pay, and the Gunners will probably get rid of most of the earnings if they can.
