Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger is set to finally ink a new deal after leading the side to an FA Cup triumph.
Arsenal’s most successful manager Arsene Wenger will extend his stay at the club until 2017 by signing a new 3-year deal within the next few days, reports the Telegraph. The French boss has been stalling on a new 7.5 million pound a year contract for months now, giving rise to speculation that he might leave the club.
The 64-year old though has led his team to a record-equalling 5th FA Cup triumph under his reign last Saturday, and is now set to commit to a deal that will take him into his 3rd decade as Arsenal boss.
There were rumours that Wenger would not have continued as Arsenal boss if they had not won the FA Cup this season, but the manager insists that all the speculation is mere conjecture, and has confirmed that he will agree a new deal before flying to the World Cup on June 10.
Arsenal’s boardroom is also set to hand their long serving manager a £100 million transfer kitty this summer, which would allow the French boss to strengthen the side’s weaker areas and get the team to contest for the Premier League as well as the Champions League titles once again.
