Ivan Gazidis is set to hire Arsene Wenger as the new manager of AC Milan despite spending years trying to get rid of him from Arsenal.
But the ink had hardly dried on Unai Emery’s Arsenal contract when Gazidis announced that he, too, was off, seduced by the bright lights and fat pay packet on offer from his mate who has found himself in charge of one of the world’s biggest football clubs.
Fast forward a few months and Arsene Wenger still hasn’t decided on where his career will go next while Gazidis is still boxing up his things at Colney.
With Milan performing poorly this season (they’re 12th in Serie A at present), Gazidis is now, reportedly, going to convince Wenger to join him in Italy.
The article, which appeared in the S*n is full of ‘ifs’ ‘whens’ and ‘coulds’ and, while there is no denying that Gennaro Gattuso is under increasing pressure at the club, there is no indication that Gazidis is keen to reignite his relationship with Wenger.
Gazidis is set to start his new job next week.
