The Frenchman is out of a job since leaving Arsenal in May but off late, Arsene Wenger has been linked with a move to Real Madrid and the former Gunners boss has finally addressed the rumours.
Arsene Wenger is out of a job since May. The Frenchman stepped down as manager of Arsenal after being in charge of 22 years. Since then Arsene has been linked with the managerial position at various other clubs. Real Madrid is the latest club to be looking for the services of the Frenchman and it looks like the former Arsenal gaffer finally addresses the rumours of him being the net manager of Real Madrid.
Arsene Wenger insists he has no imminent plans to make the vacant Real Madrid post his first job since leaving Arsenal. He has also been linked with a move to AC Milan as the pressure on Gennaro Gattuso mounts. Arsene Wenger has been touted as a target for Real in the past and is once again a potential candidate following the sacking of Julen Lopetegui. The veteran Frenchman has now addressed the rumors and claimed the rumours connecting him with Milan as “fake news”.
The former Arsenal manager told beIN SPORTS, “I haven’t made any decision about my future yet. Do I go into straight away into management again or not?. So, to be honest, Real Madrid has not come back to me, so I have not turned them down.” Wenger was also asked what would be his reply if Real Madrid wants him as their next boss.
The Frenchman replied, “I take every problem when I have to face it and try to find a solution. At the moment I don’t have that problem. I said I will decide in January what I will do. At the moment I have taken contacts but I think it’s all better that it stays confidential. And then I come out and speak about that when I really know what I want to do.”
It would be interesting to see where Wenger goes next. Throughout his tenure at Arsenal, we know he has been honest with media, so it may be true that Madrid never contacted the Frenchman. However, it would be interesting to see Arsene in the stands of Santiago Bernabeu.
