Arsene Wenger’s next job: will he go to AC Milan, PSG, Real Madrid or Fifa?

Former Arsenal manager is close to replacing Gattuso at Milan

Arsene Wenger is reportedly in “advanced talks” to take over at AC Milan, but according to several media outlets he’s also being linked with roles at Paris Saint-Germain and Real Madrid.

The 69-year-old Frenchman has been without a job since leaving Arsenal at the end of last season. He spent 22 years in the Gunners hot seat and won three Premier League titles and seven FA Cups.

Wenger told Sky Sports last week that it would be “odd” to manage a club in England after such a long association with Arsenal. He also confirmed that he plans to return to football at the beginning of 2019, but did not know where.

According to France Football magazine, his next club is expected to be AC Milan. He has reportedly been in talks with the Italians for several weeks as they look to replace current head coach Gennaro Gattuso.

However, The Sun adds today that Wenger is at the centre of a “tug-of-war” between Milan, French champions PSG and Champions League holders Real Madrid.

It’s claimed that Wenger has been contacted by Real Madrid president Florentino Perez about taking over from Julen Lopetegui, who was sacked last week.

PSG have been linked with a move to make Wenger their sporting director while Paris United reports that the world football governing body Fifa is also believed to want to offer him a role.

The London Evening Standard contacted Wenger’s agent to ask about the potential move to Milan but there was no response this morning.
