Real Madrid preparing shock move for Premier League manager
Real Madrid are keen on bringing Arsene Wenger to the Santiago Bernabeu in some capacity this summer should the Frenchman decide to leave Arsenal this summer, per Sky.
Wenger, 67, has been in charge of the Gunners for 21 years but could depart the club, with his contract expiring, amid growing frustration at the team’s progress from fans. He claims to have made a decision on his future but has not yet announced it.
Real are reportedly keeping an eye on the situation with a view to luring him to Spain, either as a sporting director or coach, depending on what happens with Zinedine Zidane.
The Arsenal boss recently reiterated his desire to continue in football management, whether at the Emirates Stadium or elsewhere.
“I will not retire, retiring is for young people,” said Wenger.
“For old people retirement is dying. I still watch every football game. I find it interesting.
“I hate defeat. But I can understand the fans that are unhappy with every defeat. I carry a bit more pressure on my shoulders than 20 years ago [when he first arrived at Arsenal] but the hunger is exactly the same.
“The only way to have victory is to stick together with the fans and give absolutely everything until the end of the season, that’s all we can do.”
