Paris Saint-Germain's exit from the Champions League leaves them free to sack manager Laurent Blanc, reports Le 10 Sport.

A clause in the Frenchman's contract states that he would only recieve a series of lucrative bonuses, totalling £1.5m if he managed to guide PSG to the semi-finals of the Champions League.

Originally given a two-year contract at the beginning of the season, Blanc was only offered a basic salary laiden with clauses based on performances in Europe.

PSG crashed out of the Champions League last night at the hands of Chelsea, who, thanks to a late goal from Demba Ba, recovered from a 3-1 first leg defeat to go through on away goals.

That triumph from Jose Mourinho's men could not only guide them to another famous Champions League triumph but could also see Arsene Wenger leave Arsenal.

The Qatari owners at Parc des Princes have made no secret of their desire to recruit Wenger as the manager of their team and have been rejected by the Frenchman more than once in the past.

Until now, Wenger's position at the Emirates Stadium has looked solid but he has refused to commit his future to Arsenal as of yet and his contract has just three months to run.

Wenger has already verbally agreed a two-year extension with the Gunners but is reportedly waiting to see where Arsenal finish before committing to the summer of 2016.

Recent reports have claimed that if Arsenal fall out of the top four and/or miss out on the FA Cup, Wenger will call time on an 18-year stint in charge of Arsenal.

PSG are now considering sacking Blanc and Wenger would be first on their hit list.
