Paris (AFP) – Under-pressure Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger dismissed as “fake news” reports that Paris Saint-Germain had offered him a two-year deal at the French champions.
The Frenchman is facing a fan backlash at Arsenal after a rotten run of form and British tabloid The Sun said on Monday that PSG had offered him a contract to replace Unai Emery this summer.
Wenger, who has reportedly decided to stay at Arsenal despite mounting pressure to quit, told beIN Sports of the PSG link: “It’s a false rumour, it’s ‘fake news’. I say formally: it is not true.”
Following a damaging 3-1 loss at West Bromwich Albion on Saturday, Arsenal’s fourth defeat in five Premier League games, the 67-year-old said he had made up his mind about his future.
“I know what I’ll do in my future, so you will know very soon,” he told reporters.
British media subsequently said Wenger, who has been in charge at Arsenal since 1996, was set to sign a new contract.
