One of the main reasons Arsene Wenger found it so hard to let go at Arsenal is because the manager has little else in his life to distract him, but there is plenty out there for him to do.
PSG have wanted Arsene Wenger as their manager for as long as I can remember and Wenger has made no secret of it.
In fact, he admitted that he almost left Arsenal for the Paris club in the summer before signing a new deal to stay with Arsenal for another two years.
In total, they are believed to have tried to sign him at least three times and the Telegraph reported as far back as 2008 that Wenger was seriously considering quitting Arsenal at the end of his contract in 2011 to join them as President after helping them with their long-term strategy 10 years ago.
Wenger, however, opted to remain at Arsenal to chase that elusive Champions League title.
Unai Emery has been at the club since 2016 and in that time has won the Coupe de France, Coupe de la Ligue, and the Tropheé des Champions twice, but the hierarchy there have also tried to replace him twice – once with Arsene Wenger and a second time with an unnamed manager after they lost to Bayern Munich 3-1 during the Champions League group stages.
Wenger’s relationship with the PSG owners is well documented. Nasser Al-Khelaifi is the chairman and chief executive officer of beIN Media Group as well as the chairman and chief executive officer of PSG and Wenger often works as a pundit for beIN.
Ligue 1 coaches are not permitted to be over 65 and they would need to seek permission from the French FA before they could appoint Wenger.
This shouldn’t cause too much of an obstacle as the FFF recently approved Claudio Ranieri’s appointment as Nantes manager. Ranieri turned 65 six months before he was given the job.
Plus, Arsenal’s relationship with the French FA means they would likely allow him to do whatever he wanted in the hopes that he might one day…..
