Arsene Wenger has been linked with a move to Barcelona after Luis Enrique confirmed he will leave the Nou Camp at the end of the season.
Wenger’s deal is set to expire this summer and has not yet confirmed whether he will remain on as Arsenal boss next season. However, the Frenchman has previously stated that no matter what he will continue in a managerial role, even if he decides to leave the Emirates, and has also told reporters that he will decide his future in the next two months.
Wenger reportedly turned down a massive £30million-a-year offer from China this week and is now favourite to take over from Enrique at Barcelona next season.
But the Frenchman insists he remains committed to Arsenal:
“My preference has always been Arsenal but I am objective enough to make the right decision for myself and the club itself.
“The club can also make their decision if it wants and I will respect that. I am not looking for jobs of other clubs or jobs of other people.
“I am just focusing on getting to the next level and try to improve. Competent managers always try to get better, to reinvent themselves.”
“I’ve been here 20 years and many times had opportunity to leave.”
Wenger has dropped hints that he will commit his future to Arsenal, and it seems he is set to continue at the helm at the Emirates with a new two-year deal on the table from the Gunners which would see him earn £10million-a-year.
He’s had opportunities to leave in the past, why would he do so now, especially if he is going to receive an extra £2million-a-year.
