Arsène Wenger Poised to End Arsenal Reign And Move To Paris St-Germain, Says Report: The Nightly EPL

French newspaper Le Parisien is reporting that Arsene Wenger is scheduled to meet with Paris Saint-Germain owners next week, while current PSG manager looks likely to replace Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid.

When Wenger was asked about the French rumors recently, here’s what he said:

“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.”

It could be an ideal opportunity for Wenger to take on a new challenge with a club that has plenty of money to spend on some of the top players in the world. Plus, it’ll give Wenger an opportunity to return to France, where he began his management career in 1984.

    Yea, I don’t buy the stuff I’ve been reading in the papers. Wenger isn’t going anywhere.

    It is sad to see the way Arsenal plays only to realize that they will never reach their heights again unless the board give Wenger more money to spend and keep his own players.

    For the past few years, the so-called experts keep writing off Arsenal early on in the season. Whether it’s because they’ve lost a major player or because of poor early form. But Wenger sticks to his plans and weathers the media storm. Then by the end of the year everyone is talking about what an amazing job he’s done.

    But the bottom line is, the business of football is very different from the time when Arsenal were winning trophies. BIG money has changed the whole landscape.

    People will say that clubs were always overpaying for players. But this Arab and billionaire money (PSG, Man City, Chelsea) has changed everything. Even teams like United are having trouble keeping up with the growth in salaries.

    But Wenger believes in his abilities and in his players. I think he’s going to stick it out until the bitter end. He enjoys managing his type of football and he understands Arsenal management’s business plan. It seems like a good fit.

    But I agree with the majority…Arsenal need to spend or their fans will have to live with Champions League qualification as a “trophy”.

    Gaffer, ponder for a second!

    Wenger knows that anywhere else and he would have been booted already. Why would he want to go anywhere? Plus he gets paid handsomely for doing whatever he wants to do. You think this luxury would exist at PSG?

    This kind of nonsense may last in lower tier teams like Wigan where Roberto Martinez is trying to float them to the premier league every season but for a supposedly top club like Arsenal, not winning anything for this long becomes a farce.

    Die hard Arsenal supporters argue vehemently about the debt and financial fair play. Even if Arsenal is cleared of all debts (stadium paid off) and UEFA adopts FPP, they have this farcical vision that all of a sudden Arsenal would start winning everything.

    Wenger has been given everything he wants at Arsenal. Believe me, he does not want to spend. Because, if he spends, his whole plot is now visible to the entire world. Fans will think he hasn’t been given enough money, he will keep the board happy by selling top players and at the end, he keeps his job for decades.

    “It could be an ideal opportunity for Wenger to take on a new challenge with a club that has plenty of money ”

    Is this a joke? Gaffer, are you spending a lot of time at the onion?

      Emphasis on the word ‘could.’ Wenger has been in the Arsenal job for 17 years. PSG would be a new lease of life.

    It sounds highly possible. It’s about time too. If he does decide to leave the Gunners, I hope people, including the media, give him proper honor considering all the great things he has done for the club.

    Arsenal fans should be careful what they wish for, next year they could have Moyes scratching his chin as Arsenal get beaten away in Europe by some minnows.

    you obviously haven’t taken any notice of his most RECENT rumours rubbishing such talk.
    If like the press would have you believe we have 60/70 mil to spend in the summer i think we should get someone in who isn’t afraid to spend it. If we dont have that sort of money i would rather he stayed.
    Their is but only one other manager in the league that proven his worth on a shoe string (Moyes!) and I’m not sure he is what we need.
    Don’t get me wrong, i don’t believe we should be spending every available penny on new players, but if we are to win anything sometime soon then investment is needed.
