The experienced French trainer was in charge at Monaco in the late Eighties to early Nineties, with Wenger winning the Ligue 1 title in his very first season in charge at the Stade Louis II in 1988.
And then after a brief spell in the J-League with Grampus Eight, Wenger then joined the north London club when he replaced Bruce Rioch in the dugout at Highbury in September 1996.
However, with Wenger’s current two-year contract at the Emirates set to run out at the end of June and still there being no news of the 64-year-old agreeing to extend his 18-year stay in the capital, rumours have been rife in recent weeks claiming that the veteran may be about to quit the club at the end of the campaign.
And if these latest reports are to be believed, then Monaco are prepared to make Wenger the highest-paid manager in the world by offering him £10m-a-season AFTER tax to make the move.
