Arsene Wenger Reportedly Offered ‘General Manager’ Job At PSG

One of the burning questions in the game currently revolves around Arsene Wenger’s future.

Having been a permanent fixture at Arsenal for 22 years, it will be bizarre to see Wenger in his new position, wherever that may be. Prior to his tenure at Arsenal, Wenger was manager at Japanese side Nagoya Grampus Eight – as far back as 1996.

Given the unlikelihood of the Frenchman moving to another Premier League club, many believe that a return to France, or even international management, is on the cards.

Per Le10Sport in France, Wenger has already received an offer, though not the one some were expecting.

The French outlet report that the 68-year-old has held talks in Paris with PSG officials over the possibility of a four-year contract. However, the position being mooted is that of a ‘general manager’.

This is due to the managerial post already being offered (or as Le10Sport claim, ‘promised’) to current Borussia Dortmund boss Thomas Tuchel.

PSG manager Unai Emery has, much like Wenger, confirmed his departure at the end of the season. The position is indeed up for grabs, but reports have linked Tuchel with the post at Chelsea, given that Antonio Conte’s days are seemingly numbered.

If that Chelsea situation develops, Wenger could be in contention for the main job that would involve managing the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappe, and Edinson Cavani.

Whatever happens, Wenger looks odds on to be at PSG next season in some capacity.
