Former Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger ''Negotiating'' And ''Close'' To Taking Serie A Job

Guess who's back?
Guess who's back?

The former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been in talks over taking over the AC Milan job “for weeks” according to France Football.

They report that there has been quick progress in the talks between the two parties and they are "close to succeeding".

In an interview with Sky Sports last month the 69-year-old predicted a swift return to management: "I'll be somewhere early next year but I do not know where, I got a good rest. I watched a lot of football, I miss it."

It could, it seems, be in Milan that he makes that return.

The Rossoneri have recently been taken over by the US investment fund Elliot Management Corporation and the early season form of the club this term has not lived up to the expectations of those in power at the fund and they want to replace Gennaro Gattuso according to these reports.

Paul Singer, founder of the fund, is himself an avid Arsenal fan and so these links, therefore, would seem unsurprising.

Taking into account the fact that the former Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis announced in September of this year that he had agreed to take up a role with AC Milan in December, they seem even less so.

With his former manager reportedly ready to roll his sleeves back up after a restful period - in his own words - “early next year” could Gazidis get the band back together for 2019?

Wenger has been linked, too, with a move up to the boardroom at the French champions PSG among a host of other roles.
