Mikel Arteta OFFICIALLY speaks on move away from Arsenal
ARSENAL boss Mikel Arteta has dismissed reports linking him with the Real Madrid job.
Mikel Arteta took over an Arsenal side that were struggling to play exciting football and challenge for the Champions League – but he has turned them into one of the most exciting teams in Europe.
Arsenal are sitting top of the Premier League and looking increasingly likely to win that League title for the first time since 2004 – but there has been speculation surrounding his future at the club
According Remontada Blanca, Carlo Ancelotti is coming under increasing pressure at the Bernabeu with Real Madrid adding options to replace the experienced Italian manager.

The report suggests the La Liga club could move for Arteta following his success with the Gunners so far this season – However, speaking ahead of Arsenal’s Europa League clash with Sporting, the Spaniard quashed the speculation, stating his commitment to the Gunners.
He said: “It’s things that managers or players can’t control what is written.
“What I can tell is that I’m fully focused on what I’m doing here and extremely proud and grateful to do what I’m doing in this football club. That’s it.”
With what the Spaniard have achieved at Arsenal over the past few seasons is amazing and it is easy to see why so many have tipped him to become the next big boss in the game.
It is also easy to see why Madrid really want him – but his long-term plans are with ARSENAL – so unless they sack him- he is going nowhere and the Gunners fans can expect to see him in that dugout for a very long-time.
