Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has reportedly turned down a deal worth £30million-a-year to become a Chinese Super League boss. The Frenchman’s contract at the Gunners is up at the end of the season, leaving his future in doubt and it is possible he could leave the club.
However, according to a report in The Telegraph, Wenger has turned down the chance to join a Chinese Super League side on a massive £30million-a-year contract. Wenger had been sounded out by an unnamed Chinese club due to his current contract uncertainty and was offered a deal worth double what Pep Guardiola is on at Manchester City.
The contract would have seen the 67-year-old become the highest paid manager in the world, however, it seems the Frenchman is keen to manage at the highest level in Europe if he does leave Arsenal. Wenger does have a two-and-a-half year contract extension on the table, but it remains to be seen if he will take up the option, with discontent and pressure continuing to rise from the Gunners faithful over their performances.
Talking about the speculation, Wenger confirmed: “No matter what happens, I will manage next season, whether it’s here or somewhere else. That’s absolutely for sure.
