PSG Reportedly Offer Departing Arsenal Boss Arsene Wenger Four-Year Deal To Be New General Manager

Paris Saint-Germain have offered Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger the job of general manager, according to reports.

The Frenchman is leaving the Gunners this summer after 22 years at the helm.

Wenger, 68, has already expressed his desire to continue at the top level.

And Le10 Sport claim that PSG, who today announced manager Unai Emery will leave next month, have presented him with that opportunity.

The article claims that the Ligue 1 giants want ex-Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel as their new head coach.

But that they have already held discussions with Wenger and offered him a four-year contract to become their new GM.

The potential move would see him working on all aspects of the club, overseeing their transfer policy and in charge of the scouting network.

Wenger, for the moment, appears to be keeping his options open for when he departs Arsenal.

However, he enjoys a good relationship with PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi and could be tempted by a switch upstairs.

The pair met and became friends through Wenger’s work as a pundit for beIn Sports – the television station owned by the millionaire supremo.

Le10 Sport state that PSG do not see the Gunners legend as a potential coach any more.

But they believe his experience and skills would offer them a huge advantage in the boardroom.

Meanwhile, Wenger’s quest to end his reign in North London with Euro success took a huge blow last night.

A late equaliser from Antoine Griezmann gave ten-man Atletico Madrid a precious away-goal from the first leg of their Europa League semi-final at the Emirates, which ended 1-1.

Atletico defender Sime Vrsaljko was sent off inside the opening ten minutes prior to Alexandre Lacazette breaking the deadlock just after the hour mark.

But it would be France forward Griezmann who would have the final say on the night to make his side favourites to reach the final ahead of the return leg next week.
