Arsene Wenger commits his future to Arsenal.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has committed his future to the club amid rumours of a move to PSG, according to the Metro.
The Gunners manager is under pressure after eight years without a trophy, but is still highly thought of in his native France, and would be a popular choice as manager of PSG if current boss Carlo Ancelotti leaves at the end of the season.
The Italian has been linked with the Real Madrid job, which is expected to become vacant when Jose Mourinho quits the club at the end of this campaign. Chelsea’s interim manager Rafael Benitez has also been lined up as a replacement for the Ligue 1 club, and it looks like they may have to deal with a rejection from Wenger.
The French tactician says he remains committed to his contract with the club, which expires in 2014, prompting rumours that PSG will move for him again next summer.
“I want to stay,” said Wenger.
“If I do well, the club considers I do well.
“I have a contract, I always respect my contracts. Every game excites me plus the love for this club.”
If Wenger stays, he might be under pressure to dip into the transfer market in order to bring back glory to the club. The 63-year-old has been reluctant to spend big on proven players in recent times, showing a preference for nurturing youngsters.
Despite this lack of success, his job at Arsenal seems safe, the the two will likely only part company if Wenger decides to leave at the end of his current deal.
