I though we had this one sorted yesterday when Arsene Wenger seemed to commit to Arsenal for the next twelve months, but apparently not.
In case you haven’t seen it though this morning The Telegraph is suggesting that leading figures at PSG have been telling members of the French footballing elite that Arsene is on his way.
And not just in summer 2014 when his contract with Arsenal runs out – but this summer.
The theory runs like this. Carlo Anecleotti has said he wants to go – possibly to replace the Chelsea-bound Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid. PSG need a manager to guide them through a serious crack at the Champions League next season. The French club is quite possibly the only club that Wenger would consider. His family could even stay in London while he works in Paris
It would also mean leaving Arsenal behind hopefully for Wenger safe in the knowledge that the club has weathered the worst and can also make a real attempt at the Champions League/Premiership next season off the back of £70 milion worth of investment.
As the Telegraph reports
Asked about the rumours in his native France connecting him to Ancelotti’s job, Wenger said after the 1-1 draw with Manchester United on Sunday: “First of all I don’t know too much about what’s been said about me. Then I’m concentrating on the next game and the next season. At the end of my contract I’ll see what I can do. I’ve always respected my contracts. I can’t see at my age why that should change.” Seasoned Wenger-watchers detected a note of ambiguity in that statement.
So what do you think? Is Arsene on his way back to France?
