Where will Wenger manage next? The bookies make France favourite

So while all Arsenal fans are wondering who will replace Arsene Wenger at the Emirates, there are many clubs all over the world that would love to see Wenger manage their teams. David Dein said yesterday that he is already getting enquiries. “Over the last few years, I know for a fact he’s been approached by some of the biggest clubs in the world – I think of Real Madrid, Paris St Germain, the national team wanted him at one stage.” Dein said. “There will be no shortage of offers.

“I personally had calls from various people yesterday, saying, ‘can I speak to him?’.

“The question is does he want to do it anymore?

“He’s going to be 69 in October but he’s extraordinarily fit. He is the same weight as when I met him – 75 kilos.”

There is no doubt that Wenger wants to carry on as manager after leaving Arsenal, and he made it clear after yesterday’s win. “In what way you do not spend 22 years of your life for every single day with maximum energy for the cause, and you walk away blowing your whistle? Of course, I dedicated my life to this club and I’m not scared to say that. Sometimes certainly in excess, but at the end of the day that’s how I am and in my next job I think I’ll be the same again.”

So where will that job be? PSG (6/1) must be the likely favourites because of his connection with Paris and the owners, although Monaco (10/1) may be better suited as they are also renowned for bringing youngsters through to the senior side, and of course he has managed there before, many moons ago! Lyon are also rated as a 12/1 outsider…

The France national team (7/2) may also be looking for a new boss after the World Cup as well, and so will England (8/1), and he has been linked with both those jobs in the past…

An early rumour was that Everton (8/1) wanted him to replace Sam Allardyce. The owners at Goodison Park are very good friends with Alisha Usmanov who has always supported Arsene and wanted Kroenke to give him better players. He has also been tipped to take over at Chelsea, but that is surely impossible! Wenger was actually asked if he could manage another EPL team yesterday, and he replied: “I don’t know how well I would deal with that.

“It’s difficult to say never, but at the moment I’m too attached to this club.

“I honestly cannot tell you much more, because I don’t want you to come back to me in six months and say you lied to us.”

Personally I think he will be going to PSG, not just because of his connections there, but because they will offer him as much if not more than he is currently earning at Arsenal….

Where do you think he will end up?

    I hope he will go PSG that is place where he can prove himself.
    I honestly wish him no matter where he go. I will look at few games as i watch sometimes Giroud if he playes. Other than that i still believe he could have some high position in Arsenal his economic understand is no joke.

    1. tony says:

      i would like to see him in PSG. need to drag down psg

  2. gotanidea says:

    His next club could be Real Madrid, because Zidane might not win anything in this season

    PSG’s president already stated that they want to keep Emery, because he won the league and there is no contact with Tuchel

  3. Innit says:

    Id prefer him to leave Arsenal completely than to seek a higher position within the club because he could still influence transfers or how much we spend and how things are run here.

    I don’t care where he goes but wish him all the best

      agree friend

  4. Kenny Rolfe says:

    I also think PSG, the capital of his country plus he does a lot of broadcasting for French television. Also the fact they’ve touted him for many years. It would also suit him in this time of his life and even possibly prepare for a final push to manage the French national side. Also I’d like to add off topic, I was wondering if anyone saw the tweet POSTED BY THE FA, “Hi Chris, what’s that in your pocket, Oh I see it’s Harry Kane”. If that doesn’t prove the FA’s bias towards their beloved Manchester United nothing will, They’ve since apologised and removed the tweet but all I’d like to say is “to late a***holes

    1. Sue says:

      Makes me sick ?

      1. Ozziegunner says:

        You’re not wrong. Apparently Manchester United is the centre of the universe.

  5. Counsel says:

    There is no transfer window for managers,Wenger has not yet resigned officially.He can continue managing the club in interin as the board looks for a world class manager.There’s no need to rush things.My options are jardim,allegro or Rodgers

    1. pires says:

      Bring in Rodgers would be idiotic…Ancellotti for me

    2. ClassyGunner says:

      instead of Rogers, I’ll prefer to have Wenger back

  6. Sergio says:

    “It’s difficult to say never, but at the moment I’m too attached to this club.”

    I’m worried if this is implies he’s talking to Arsenal about staying on at the club in a different capacity..

    1. Arnold says:

      He overstayed his welcome for being selfish and I don’t really care where he goes after I went through hell for over 10 years watching Arsenal it’s prettymuch down to himself the way things ended up – he tried to act at some points as if he owns Arsenal

  7. Yossarian says:

    I reckon there is absolutely no chance of Wenger getting an offer from somebody like Real Madrid or PSG… And Chelsea? Hahahahahaha… Absolutely no way. Those clubs all demand success, quickly and consistently. They wouldn’t offer him a job nowadays, and he wouldn’t want it either.

    He’d be well suited to a club where money is tight and there is a good academy that’s already producing young players that want encouragement and a chance to play, and where competing for top-level silverware is not expected.
