Arsenal looking like they will be active in the transfer window this summer. And aside working hard to ensure the right players are brought in, Arsenal owners are said to be planning to keep their manager Arsene Wenger from England’s reach next season. The Frenchman who has been liked with PSG and Real Madrid only have over one year on his contract.
The Arsenal boss is expected to see out the final year of his contract next season, but, FA chief executive Martin Glenn when speaking on Tuesday, revealed he’s set to wait up to a year to ensure he appoints the right man.
But the Emirate club is already looking towards opening talks over extending his contract at the North London club to ensure he stays.
The Gunners chiefs are aware of the some fans sentiment towards Wenger. But, things go according to plan on the field, then club owner Stan Kroenke is likely to sanction a new deal for Wenger.
The Frenchman is very likely to sign a new contract at the club considering his emotional ties with the London club, which would expectedly end any FA pursuit of Wenger.
A poor season could change the dynamics of a new contract for the Frenchman, that might result in a fan backlash, which could open the door for the FA to make their move for Wenger.
