The future of manager Arsene Wenger has been speculated a lot since he has only one year left on his contract. He has been linked with a return to France with the likes of PSG and Monaco interested in his services. However, the Frenchman has said that he may commit to Arsenal beyond the end of the season and has revealed that contract talks are going on between the two parties. Even though PSG only recently appointed former Bordeaux manager Laurent Blanc as the replacement for Carlo Ancelotti, it has failed to prevent rumours making the mega rich club with a move for Wenger.
Wenger is determined to end the trophy drought at Arsenal and the club has been linked with several big-name players for the last few weeks. They have even offered in excess of £ 40 million for Liverpool striker Luis Suarez, which is unlike Arsenal in the last decade. Under the management of Wenger, the club has been extremely prudent when it comes to spending money. However, the policy of buying youngsters and developing them into stars has not been beneficial in terms of expanding the trophy cabinet. In fact, Arsenal are yet to win a major trophy since moving to the new Emirates stadium seven years ago.
“The link is because I’m French and I know the owners. But if that was the case, then I would be there already. My heart is with Arsenal. I am committed to staying longer at this club. We had already a chat with Ivan [Gazidis, the chief executive]. It went very well … not a problem. What I will always do in the future is not to use my longevity as an advantage to stay in this position if I don’t do well,” said the Frenchman about his future.
