Arsene Wenger is finally set to hang up that long Arsenal trench coat with that infamously dodgy zip, but he could be set to walk straight into another job according to reports in France today.
After 22 years, three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups, Wenger’s tenure is just five (or maybe six) games from reaching its final conclusion.
Despite his undoubted success and incredible longevity, his relationship with the Arsenal fans has soured in recent recent years – with large swathes of the Gunners support blaming the manager for the clubs decreasing fortunes, which could see them without Champions League football for a second successive season.
However, with his reign finally just weeks from its end, it is being reported that the Frenchman has already been offered a new job, with Paris Saint-Germain offering him a four-year deal to take over as the clubs general manager – according to Le10 Sport.
The potential move would see him working on all aspects of the club, overseeing their transfer policy and being in charge of the French side’s scouting network.
Wenger has often had an eye for the younger players around Europe, with the likes of Theo Walcott, Alex Oxlade Chamberlain, Robin van Persie, Cesc Fabregas and Hector Bellerin all joining Arsenal as youngsters.
The newly crowned French Champions have today announced that manager Unai Emery will leave the club at the end of the season, which despite reclaiming the Ligue 1 title from Monaco, saw them dumped out of the Champions League at the last 16 stage.
Former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel, who has also been linked with taking over from Wenger at Arsenal, is likely to be appointed as Emery’s replacement.
