A lot has changed in recent months at Arsenal, with Arsene Wenger stepping aside after 22 years with the Gunners and replaced by former Paris Saint-Germain boss Unai Emery.
The Spaniard, who won three consecutive Europa League titles with Sevilla, signed a three-year deal at the Emirates Stadium but it’s been revealed that the Gunners possess an easy way out if they want to make another change prematurely.
The Times reports Emery’s deal with the Premier League side contains a break clause that can be activated after two seasons, allowing Arsenal to relieve the 46-year-old from his contract without paying the full value of his deal.
Arsenal have made significant changes to their structure in preparation for Wenger’s exit, including appointed Sven Mislintat to oversee recruitment and Raul Sanllehi to work as head of football relations, while CEO Ivan Gazidis also plays a crucial role behind the scenes.
The clause would allow Arsenal to shake things up in 2020 if things don’t work as plan, although all parties will certainly hope it doesn’t come to that.
