Arsene Wenger has rejected a massive £30million-a-year offer from a Chinese Super League club.
With his contract set to expire in the summer, Wenger’s future at Arsenal remains unclear. As a result, the Frenchman has been linked with a move away from the Emirates and a move to China was considered an option.
However, Metro say the 67-year-old has turned down the opportunity to manage in China, as well as becoming the highest paid manager in world football. It’s thought the Frenchman snubbed the offer as he does not see managing in China as a suitable challenge.
Wenger did state last week that he will manage next season, even if he decides to leave Arsenal.
The Gunners hierarchy want to keep hold of the Frenchman and reports suggests that they have offered him a two-year deal to remain on as Arsenal boss. Wenger has since stated that he will make a decision on his future in the next two months.
