Arsene Wenger agrees two-year extension with Arsenal - reports

Published 1 Comments

Arsene Wenger has a agreed a deal in principle which will see him continue as Arsenal boss until 2016, according to reports.

The Daily Mirror claims that the long-serving Gunners boss has verbally pledged his future to the Emirates and is already beginning preparations for next season, with transfer options for this summer ranking high on his to-do list. Rumours this morning suggest that the powers that be at the north London giants have already started to make contingency plans for when Wenger does decide to leave the club, with a shortlist of potential replacements sitting in the pipeline.

However it appears that there will be no drastic changes in the management at the club, as Wenger has made it clear that he does want to stay, despite the speculation that he would seek to move to pastures new come the summer. It’s thought that the Frenchman is keen to continue in the dugout, and may even consider the prospect of taking on a different capacity at the club one his tenure as coach comes to an end.

The same report also highlights the fact that Arsenal may be wary of getting rid of the 64-year-old as they won’t want to risk the same capitulation Manchester United have succumbed to since Sir Alex Ferguson’s retirement.
