Premier League clubs facing wage caps and transfer restrictions to match UEFA rules – Paper Talk

All the top stories and transfer rumours from Tuesday’s national newspapers…

THE TIMES

Premier League clubs are set to face restrictions on spending on transfers and wages for the first time with England’s top flight looking to follow UEFA’s new financial rules.


Arsenal are confident that Bukayo Saka will sign a new long-term contract. The club have offered the 20-year-old winger, whose present contract runs until 2024, a significant increase on his £70,000-a-week wage.

Alfred Schreuder, the Ajax head coach, described Antony’s conduct as “weird” and suggested that the Dutch club could fine the Brazil winger for going on strike to push through his £84 million move to Manchester United.

Newcastle United are prepared to wait until 75 minutes before their Premier League game at Liverpool on Wednesday night to receive a work permit for the club record signing Alexander Isak to play at Anfield.

Players and staff at Worcester Warriors have been informed that their salaries will not be paid on time this week because the club’s bank accounts have been frozen. The players can now give notice of their intention to leave the club.
