Spanish football expert, Guillem Balague, believes Ghana midfielder Thomas Partey will not extend his contract at Atletico Madrid and will most likely leave for the Premier League in the summer transfer window.
Partey, 26, is contracted to the Spanish giants until July 2023, but that has not stopped rumours around his future with Arsenal reportedly keen on bringing him to the Premier League.
With a release clause of €50m, Premier League clubs see the Black Stars stalwart’s price as a bargain and are desperate to whisk him away from Spain.
Atletico meanwhile, are keen to keep Partey at the Wanda Metropolitano and are ready to double his wages to ward off interest, according to reports.
But answering questions on his Youtube Channel, Balague said Partey will not sign that new contract and could move to England this summer.
“What I am hearing, he has a buyout clause of €50m, and Atletico would like him to sign a new contract,” Balague said. “But he is not signing a new contract, that is as much as I can tell you.
