The shadow of Pep Guardiola is looming large over the heads of both Louis van Gaal and Manuel Pellegrini, but there has also been plenty said about Arsene Wenger's position at Arsenal.
While there is no chance of the Arsenal board sacking the long-standing Frenchman for Guardiola, there had been some calls for him to step aside and allow the Spaniard to step in. Indeed, Wenger's contract is set to expire in 2017 and he is certainly not getting any younger.
But according to The Sun, age is simply a number on a Wikipedia to the 66-year-old as he is ready to commit to a two-year extension with the Gunners and oversee a revolution within the club's scouting system.

That, of course, would rule any chance of Guardiola joining in the near future, leaving Manchester City and perhaps United to pursue him. But with Arsenal in the driving seat to win the Premier League, this summer could be the worst time in the last decade for Wenger to leave.
They are currently undergoing a complete restructure of their coaching system. Andreas Jonker has become the new head of the academy in recent years while Shad Forsythe is busy revolutionising the physio and player conditioning departments.
Now, Wenger has eyes on the scouting structure. Steve Rowley, a scout for two decades, has been promoted to head of scouting while former player Steve Marrow is now head of youth scouting.
There are reports of them going after Leicester City scout Steve Walsh while the Telegraph have recently claimed that another scout, Ben Wrigglesworth, has already signed.
Arsenal's new-found success in the Premier League seems to have reinvigorated Wenger, who could sign a contract tying him to the club until 2019. However, the manager is unlikely to sit down with Ivan Gazidis until this season has concluded so don't expect an announcement anytime soon.
