New Arsenal signing reveals what he’ll do with most of his wages

Granit Xhaka reveals that he and his brother give 80 per cent of their wages to their parents

Granit Xhaka has revealed that he and his brother give 80 per cent of their wages to their parents.

The Switzerland international signed for the Gunners last month to become the north London side’s first signing of the summer.

Xhaka is currently on international duty with Switzerland at Euro 2016 at France, before he joins up with his new team-mates at The Emirates ahead of next season.

And the 23-year-old has revealed that both he and his brother give most of their wages back to their parents.

Xhaka is quoted as saying by Spox: “Because we owe our parents everything, we want to give them something back today.

“And we give, each month our income from [football], of course we have a separate account, but 80 percent of our income we send home.

“We are young, we are naive with money, money can go fast again.

“If anyone thinks he is something better, just because he has more money in his account… then he can very quickly fall on his face. The family is our greatest luxury.”

Arsenal, who finished second in the Premier League last season, are still believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer.
