won't come cheap Mikel Arteta: Man City ‘demand £2m compensation’ from Arsenal for their assistant manager

Manchester City have ordered Arsenal to pay £2million in compensation for the services of Mikel Arteta, reports claim.
The Gunners are on the verge of appointing the Spaniard, who is currently assistant coach to Pep Guardiola at City, as their new manager.
Arteta has already agreed a deal in principle, but according to Sky Sports News, the move is being held up by City’s compensation demands.
Negotiations are currently under way as the two clubs look to reach an agreement.
It is understood City are unhappy that Arsenal did not ask for permission to speak to Arteta and are especially annoyed because Pep Guardiola’s side played at the Emirates on Sunday and no approach was made when club officials met.
A source told the BBC last night: “It’s surprising to hear that plans are being made by Arsenal to unveil our coach as their head coach on Friday on the basis that no contact has been made by the club to discuss this matter.”
Despite the setback, Arsenal look likely to appoint Arteta as their new head coach in the next 24 hours.
Interim boss Freddie Ljungberg was expected to face the media at 1.30pm ahead of Saturday’s trip to Everton – which is LIVE on talkSPORT – but the press conference was cancelled due to Arteta’s imminent arrival.
