Real Madrid, PSG, Or Milan? Arsene Wenger Seems To Have Found His New Job In Management

Arsene Wenger is a wanted man.

The Frenchman’s torrid last few seasons at Arsenal have seemingly evaporated into distant memory in the months since he left the club he spent 22 years at.

Gooners are enjoying life under new manager Unai Emery, with Wenger now allowed to revel in the attention swarming around him at some of Europe’s top clubs after years of honourably batting them away.

AC Milan have been heavily linked with appointing the 69-year-old to replace the reportedly under-fire Gennaro Gattuso as a new regime takes hold at the San Siro, despite the Italian having won six of his last eight game to leave Milan in fourth in Serie A.

As reported by The Sportsman, the new head of Milan - American billionaire Paul Singer - is a self-proclaimed Arsenal fan, and with former Gunners Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis - who worked with Wenger for nine years at the Emirates - set to take up the position with the Rossoneri at the beginning of December, the return of Wenger to management seems imminent.

Ladbrokes now put Wenger at just 1/3 to be the new Milan manager, narrowed completely down from the 11/8 that was set following Gazidis’ appointment.

However, there is also interest from elsewhere around Europe.

Though Thomas Tuchel’s Paris Saint-Germain are loving life atop the French Ligue 1 once again, little seems to have changed from Unai Emery’s reign, with Les Parisiens having an unconvincing start in their new campaign to achieve their much desired Champions League success to certifiably put them amongst Europe’s elite.

Les Parisiens have recently bested Tottenham Hotspur’s long-standing record of an opening winning streak of 11 straight league games, but defeats to Liverpool and a draw with Napoli in Europe’s premier competition have left them in the precarious position of dropping into the Europa League.

Ladbrokes make Wenger 12/1 to make the move to the Parc Des Princes, the same price which sees him become the new head honcho at Real Madrid.

Santiago Solari has stood in for Los Blancos since Julen Lopetegui’s dismissal and has gone them back to winning ways after three straight defeats, but knows the Argentine knows his time at the Santiago Bernabeu is limited as the directors look for a more permanent replacement, of which Wenger remains a clear and attractive possibility.
