Arsenal target in La Liga reaffirms his commitment not to leave this summer

Real Sociedad could part ways with multiple key players over the summer. Robin Le Normand’s departures is already assured, and he will head to Atletico Madrid once Euro 2024 is over. Mikel Merino could join him, with club bosses resigned to losing the 28-year-old midfielder, whose contract expires in 2025.

The good news for La Real and their supporters is that Martin Zubimendi is going nowhere. The pivot, who is also with Spain at Euro 2024, has been linked with several clubs in recent months, including Arsenal, Barcelona and Bayern Munich. However, he told El Diario Vasco (via ED) that he does not plan to be playing for anyone except La Real, even if his €60m release clause is triggered.

“Where am I going to play next season? I’m going to be at Real Sociedad. I have a contract with Real Sociedad and that’s where I’m most comfortable.”

Zubimendi has re-affirmed his desire to La Real on many occasions, and it is very good news for them that he is so committed – especially given that his €60m release clause is rather enticing. He should remain a key player going forward, and even so if midfield partner Merino does depart.
