Arsene Wenger’s future is one of the biggest talking points in world football currently, and Arsenal fans may be starting to put pieces of the puzzle together.
You will be fully aware that the Frenchman is out of contract this summer, and he has come under increased pressure from sections of fans to leave when said contract is fulfilled.
The club appears to have other ideas however, and a new deal is believed to be on the table, and a decision on his future will need to be made before the season is up.
Massimiliano Allegri has been touted as one of the favourites to take over the Le Prof at the end of the season, but he has now supposedly changed his mind in regards to leaving his current role at Juventus. Allegri is claimed to be set to extend his current deal, which could be a huge nail in the coffin for those who had believed he could be cutting ties in Turin to take over this summer.
This is just the latest piece of the jigsaw to point towards an extended stay for Wenger, with him yesterday admitting that he was putting preparations in for pre-season currently.
If he is to sign a new deal, you would have to hope that reports prove to be true that Kroenke persuaded him to stay in order to rehaul the squad, which would hopefully see us progress into a title challenging side, as opposed to scraping into the Champions League spots as we have done on a number of occasions.
Is Allegri’s supposed decision to stay with Juventus down to the Arsenal manager’s future? Is this a big inclination that Wenger WILL stay?
