Wenger offered two-year deal confirm BBC


There have been conflicting reports in the media regarding Arsene Wenger’s long term future at Arsenal beyond the end of the current campaign and it is anybody’s guess as to whether the Frenchman will remain with the Gunners.

Murmurs are rife that the Arsenal board have already offered Wenger a new two year contract extension and now even the reliable BBC have gone on to confirm that the 67-year-old has been provided with an option to prolong his stay at North London.

However, Wenger has not decided whether to accept the offer from Arsenal and he is most likely to take the decision at the end of the season.

Wenger: Sanchez wants to stay

Alexis Sanchez is clearly not happy at Arsenal at the moment and many believe that the Chilean international will be leaving the Emirates Stadium following the conclusion of the current campaign, especially as he has not yet signed an extension to his contract which expires in 2018.

Despite the mounting speculation, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that Sanchez actually wants to stay put at the Emirates Stadium and that the only thing stopping the deal from taking place is the player’s agent.

Sanchez eyeing Chelsea move, PSG also interested

With every passing week, it does look more and more likely that Alexis Sanchez will be leaving Arsenal at the end of the season and a host of clubs have unsurprisingly expressed an interest in signing the Chilean superstar.

Chelsea have been mentioned as a surprise contender to sign Sanchez and now in reports which will worry the Gunners’ supporters, the Daily Telegraph have claimed that the 28-year-old attacker is also preferring a switch to Stamford Bridge.

However, it does look unlikely that Arsenal will want to sell Sanchez to one of their fiercest rivals following the debacle with Robin van Persie a couple of seasons ago and Paris Saint-Germain could be in the driver’s seat to land the services of the ex-Barcelona man despite his desire to join Chelsea.

Wenger denies PSG speculation

The speculation surrounding Arsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal beyond the end of the current campaign is still dominating headlines and there have been reports claiming that if the 67-year-old were to leave the Emirates Stadium, he could be heading back to France by joining Paris Saint-Germain.

Wenger has now finally spoken regarding the rumors linking him with a switch to PSG and has denied the claims by stating that he has not even been in contact with the French champions. "There has not been any contact," he told SFR Sports when asked about PSG. "I formally deny that."

Wenger insists he is not retiring

Arsene Wenger’s long term future has been subject to much speculation over the past few weeks and if indeed the Frenchman leaves the Emirates Stadium, many feel that he will end up retiring from football management.

However, Wenger has gone on to quash reports that he will retire next summer and insisted that his interest in football has not faded away despite his advancing years.

The 67-year-old said, “I will not retire. Retiring is for young people. For old people retirement is dying. I still watch every football game. I find it interesting.

“Of course I’m as hungry. I carry a bit more pressure on my shoulders than 20 years ago but the hunger is exactly the same. When you see what the club was and what it is today – when I arrived we were seven people [members of staff], we are 700 today.

“I hate defeat. I can understand the fans that are unhappy with every defeat but the only way to have victory is to stick together with the fans and give absolutely everything until the end of the season, that’s all we can do.”
