If rumors are to be believed, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to leave the North London club and his preferred destination, in all probability, will be France’s Ligue 1 side and current league leaders Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) as the club is looking forward to invest big money for Wenger.
Wenger, one of the longest serving managers in the Premier League, previously hinted that he may leave Arsenal at the end of the season. The decision could also be taken by the board if the North London club fails to finish, at the very least, in the top four this season. Although the Frenchman has two more years on his contract, he will review his position once the current season ends.
PSG, at the moment, is managed by Antoine Kombouare, but many believe that the Club’s new owners, Qatar Investment Authority, will make a move to bring in a high-profile manager and the current Arsenal boss may be the ideal man for the job.
The Parc des Princes-based Ligue 1 side is currently sitting on top of the table on goal difference after they had a good start in the beginning of the season. The club has spent over £80 million over the summer to acquire big names such as Jeremy Menez, Momo Sissoko, Diego Lugano, Javier Pastore and Kevin Gameiro, and is looking to make a return to the Champions League at the least.
Wenger has also been linked with Real Madrid, according to a Caughtoffside report.
Wenger, who completed 15 years at Arsenal only recently, has been with the Gunners since 1996. He has led the club to three Premier League titles, four FA Cup wins and became the first non-British manager to win the double (winning the league and the cup in the same season) in 1998, a feat that he repeated in 2002.
He became the only manager in Premier League history to go through an entire season unbeaten in 2004. The run, however, ended at 49 games.
