This source has outlined the mother of all rumours, that may or may not have any basis in fact!
Real Madrid aim to capitalise on the turmoil at Arsenal by swooping for manager Arsene Wenger in the summer.
The under-pressure Gunners boss heads a list of world-class candidates drawn up by the Spanish giants as possible replacements for their coach Bernd Schuster.
While Wenger is the No1 choice to take charge at the Bernabeu, Chelsea’s Luiz Felipe Scolari and Liverpool counterpart Rafa Benitez are Real’s other top targets, in that order.
It is not the first time that Wenger has attracted the interest of Real, who will still sack Schuster at the end of the season despite giving the German a vote of confidence last week.
That will pave the way for Real’s third attempt in six years to lure the Frenchman away from north London.
Should Wenger say ‘non’ again, though, the reigning Spanish champions would give Brazilian Scolari second refusal before turning to his Kop rival Benitez. (Sunday Express)
So there you have it, the La Liga champions are apparently outlining a move for three of the traditional top four bosses, why not go the whole hog and consider a swoop for Sir Alex to complete the set! I really don’t know where this paper got the ‘scoop’ from, but I think there is a little chance that any of these three will be leaving their clubs anytime soon. Scolari only just got to Chelsea and has done a fine job, Rafa is beginning to get closer to that elusive Premier League title and Arsene will be keen to get his Arsenal train back on track.
Do fans of any of these three teams think that the Sunday Express may have uncovered something of a coup, or is it more likely this story has been formed solely within the mind of a bored journo?
