Next Real Madrid Manager Contender Refuses To Rule Out Stunning Move

Who will Real Madrid appoint as their new manager?

Will Real Madrid’s search for a new manager ever end?

So far we’ve seen the Spanish giants linked with a multitude of managers.

There’s been Mauricio Pochettino, Jose Mourinho, Antonio Conte, Leonardo Jardim, Jupp Heynckes, and caretaker Santiago Solari, who in truth looks the most likely appointment at this stage.

However, a certain Arsene Wenger (14/1) has also been touted as a potential successor to Julen Lopetegui, who was sacked late last month.

Ah Mr Wenger! What a story that would be. The Frenchman turned down the opportunity to manage Los Blancos during his time at Arsenal - more than once we believe - but now he’s as free as a bird, he could well be tempted to jet over to the Bernabeu this time around.

In an interview with beIN Sports the man himself has refused to rule out a stunning move.

“I haven’t made any decision about my future yet.

“To be honest Real Madrid have not come back to me. I have not turned them down.

The interviewer then asked Wenger what he would do if Real Madrid did come calling. To which the former Gunners boss teased:

“I take every problem that I have to face and try to find a solution. At the moment I do not have that problem.

"I will decide in January what I will do at the moment I’m taking contacts but I think it’s all better that it stays confidential.

“I will come out and speak about that (his future) when I know what I want to do.”

Should Real Madrid want to appoint Wenger then they will have to act fast as a La Liga rule stats that a club must appoint a new manager within two weeks of a departure - if the change occurs during the season - and it’s nearly been two weeks (on Sunday) since Julen Lopetegui was ejected from his hotseat.
