Also, he hasn’t confirmed his future with Arsenal but insisted that he has no plans to retire, or whether he will remain at Arsenal. The famous French mastermind is planning to give his career a much-needed extension but hasn’t penned an extension deal with the Gunners. However, he made it crystal clear that he will not leave Arsenal until the end of the season.
Sneaking in, an unnamed Chinese club tried to acquire Arsene Wenger’s services and offered him a €30 million deal. However, he wasted no time rejecting the offer as he has no plans to take part in the big money revolution in the Far East. The deal would have seen him become the highest paid manager in the world, twice the amount of the current highest paid manager, Pep Guardiola.
Arsène Wenger has rejected a stunning offer from China to make him the highest-paid manager in the world since revealing he will not retire, whether or not he remains at Arsenal beyond the end of the season. . An unnamed Chinese club were prepared to pay Wenger £30 million-a-year net, twice the salary of the current best-paid manager, Manchester City’s Pep Guardiola. . Wenger has a two year, £10 million a year, contract offer from Arsenal on the table but there is a growing fear inside the club that he will choose to walk away at the end of the season.
It’s quite obvious now that Arsene Wenger is planning to stay competitive and would prefer to manage a club in one of Europe’s top league instead of going to China. Arsenal has already offered him a two-year extension with a 25% increase in his current salary, which would see him earn €10 million per year. His loathness is becoming a concerning aspect for the Gunners.
Should he stay at Arsenal or is it the right time for Wenger to find a new challenge?
