La Liga leaders Real Madrid are reportedly set to make a sensational move for Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.
The Daily Mail reports that the club from the Spanish capital are ready to offload current coach Jose Mourinho and make an offer for the Emirates Stadium boss.
The reports states that Wenger turned down a move to the Santiago Bernabeu in 2009, but Real are now hopeful of convincing him due to the struggles the Gunners are currently having.
Wenger is under an unprecedented amount of pressure at Arsenal after a disastrous start to the season and now after losing their last three Barclays Premier League games.
The simmering discontent around the Emirates exploded into full-blown dissent towards the manager when Wenger chose to replace the impressive Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for the consistently unimpressive Andrei Arshavin.
The outpouring of vocal criticism towards Wenger by the Arsenal fans has never been so harsh and could cause the Frenchman to reconsider his postion.
The report also claims that Wenger is one of a two-man list drawn up to replace Mourinho – the other being Germany coach Joachim Low.
The Portuguese’s position at Real has become increasingly uncertain in recent weeks after fans unrest over the conduct of the side and a reported rift in the dressing room after a leaked conversation from the training ground.
