Ivan Gazidis reportedly wants to bring Unai Emery (or Mauricio Sarri) to AC Milan as he tries to turn the Italians into a Premier League club.

I have to admit, it was surprising to see Unai Emery’s name linked with a move to another club less than a year after he was appointed Arsenal manager but then I remembered Ivan Gazidis was there and it all made sense.

After all, we can’t expect the former Arsenal chief executive to have heard of other managers, can we?

Arsenal handed Emery a three-year contract when he was brought in to replace Arsene Wenger and, while we would have hoped to see more improvement this season, especially away from home, there is no indication the club want to make a change at this point.

As for Sarri, he has been under pressure since arriving at Chelsea at the same time as the Spaniard landed in England.

That being said, they have less patience at Stamford Bridge and demand trophies as if they are their right and not something they only started buying when Roman Abramovich arrived in England.

Unai Emery will not be going anywhere this summer.
