Arsene Wenger, who recently marked 19 years in charge of the North London giants, sees his current deal run out in 2017. Whilst it was expected that year would mark his retirement, The Sunday Mirror now suggest a two-year extension is set to be declared.
Wenger’s side rose to the top of the Premier League yesterday for the first time since February 2014 and the Gooners in the bar genuinely believe they have a big chance to lift their first league title in 11-years come May.
Arsenal’s most successful manager, now 66, was expected to retire at the end of his current contract- with Bayern Munich’s Pep Guardiola the firm-favourite to succeed the Frenchman.
However, any extension may mean the Gunners miss-out on Guardiola completely as he wants to manage a London club at the end of his Bayern stint but is unlikely to wait a further three years to do so, with his contract in Bavaria expiring next summer.
Arsenal fans, is giving Arsene Wenger an extension the right thing to do? Let us know in the comments below!
