Leading Arsenal managerial candidate pricing himself out of move

Arsenal have plenty of work ahead of them this summer as they seek the ideal managerial replacement for departing boss Arsene Wenger, who is stepping aside after 22 successful years at the helm in north London.

The Gunners have already been linked with an array of names to potentially take charge at the Emirates Stadium next season but significant updates are scarce, while it also seems that one leading candidate is pricing himself out of a switch.

The Mirror states former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique, one of the early favourites to succeed Wenger, is extremely unlikely to take charge of the club as he’s demanding a whopping £15m-a-year after tax, a figure Arsenal are not prepared to pay.

While he’s still in the frame for the job, the chances of him taking charge of Arsenal next season are extremely slim, although the Gunners are keen to speak to all of their candidates before making a final decision on a move.

Arsenal want to appoint a new manager before the World Cup in Russia begins next month.
