A source at Arsenal has said that Arsene Wenger could stay at the club
beyond the 3-year contract he recently signed.
Wenger agreed the deal last week to keep him at the Emirates until 2017, but a senior source at the club has said that Wenger is happier in his role than he has been in the last 18 years.
The source told the Daily Mirror: "Arsene loves the day-to-day involvement with the players as much as ever.
"So much so that he could well stay beyond the three years."
It is said that even if Wenger does walk away from management in 2017, Arsenal may offer him a role as a club ambassador to make use of his vast football knowledge. The club will also try this week to tie down Wenger's backroom staff to new contracts.
Wenger signed the contract last week after weeks of speculation over his future. It was rumoured he would walk away with the club after fans seemed to be turning against him during the season as Arsenal threw their title challenge away and scraped a top four finish.
However, Champions League football for another season combined with an FA Cup win, their first trophy in nine years, has convinced Arsene to stay, possibly signalling a start to a new Wenger-era at The Emirates.
