PSG considering another approach for under-fire manager


Paris Saint-Germain are contemplating another attempt to persuade Arsene Wenger to become their new manager next season, reports The Sun.

Unai Emery’s position as manager of the Ligue 1 giants has come under threat following their remarkable collapse against Barcelona in the Champions League earlier in the week.

PSG chairman Nasser Al-Khelaifi is now understood to be considering a move for Wenger, whose contract at Arsenal is set to expire over the summer. PSG have tried in the past to land Wenger, but the Frenchman has always rebuffed any attempts because of his loyalty to the Gunners and seeing out his contracts.

Wenger’s 21-year reign in charge of Arsenal has come under threat more than ever this season with growing unrest among the supporters wanting him to stepdown at the end of the season.

Wenger has yet to decide whether he will put pen to paper on a new two-year deal at Arsenal, leaving many, including the board, in suspense. The 67-year-old could become available this summer, and PSG know that they will not have a better chance in landing him.

It’s believed Emery’s position at PSG is hanging in the balance and that Al-Khelaifi would happily axe the Spaniard in order to bring in Wenger as a replacement.
