PSG in £10 million raid of Arsene Wenger

PSG is plotting a £10 million raid for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger who has already turned down two previous offers from the club.

The French champions are confident of landing the 67-year-old once his contract expires at the end of the season.

PSG will offer the Frenchman a salary worth £10 million with attractive bonuses in an attempt to make the Frenchman as comfortable as possible, though his current salary with the Gunners is £8 million.

Wenger has turned down two lucrative offers from PSG in the last five years reaffirming his loyalty to the Gunners. With his current contract with the Gunners ending soon, PSG is intent of having Wenger switch sides to become the team’s manager.

The longest serving premier league coach confirmed PSG’s interest when Arsenal faced the French champions in a UEFA champion’s league game in September.

“I know Sheikh Bin Khelaifi is interested in me, but I remain loyal to Arsenal,” Wenger said.

“I love Paris so much as well as France as a whole, but I have stayed in England for this long period because I love what I see here at Arsenal.”

PSG’s current manager, Unai Emery’s future at the club is looking bleak just six months after replacing Laurent Blanc at the Parc des Princes.

PSG is currently in the third position in the table after winning the title convincingly last year.

PSG is also scouting for a replacement for the current coach. Clearance Seedorf, Roberto Mancini and former Manchester United manager Louis Van Gaal are shortlisted candidates the club is willing to have joined the side.

While alternatives are being sought, Arsene Wenger remains the preferred candidate by the club’s Qatari owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi and has maintained a close relationship with the Frenchman.

Wenger recently celebrated his 20th anniversary at Arsenal, but he is yet to sign a new deal.

PSG knows that a transfer next month is unlikely to happen, but they are ready to wait until the end of the season when his contract will expire.
