If I’m him, I’m trying to get myself to a huge club for a couple of seasons if I can. His career has not been as good as it could have been for someone with his talent in front of goal. There was a sense of getting out while he could with Dortmund and I can’t see why he wouldn’t be feeling the same here.
He rolled the dice with us, a fallen-ish big-ish club with what he might of thought was a legendary manager, that was looking to start spending and could only go upwards (especially after acquiring a 30 goal striker) but it backfired.
He’s not been here through happy times so I doubt he’s generated any kind of true love for the club or the fans compared to any of his other clubs/fans. Wenger’s end included a lot of toxicity and the Emery era is probably about to head that way too.
If he tries to make that happen in the summer and can’t get a big move I can see him accepting that and extending, but to be honest if it came out tomorrow that he’d signed an extension I think I’d actually think less of him
