If the attempt falls flat on its face, as it’s likely to, then the last gasp attempt by the French side to get their man could oddly work in Arsenal’s favour.
You’ll be hard pushed to find many who think Wenger will walk away from the current Arsenal side when his deal expires next summer, regardless of how much cash PSG throw in his direction.
There are simply too many reasons why it’s unlikely to happen.
Wenger is building something, which has only just started to show what it’s capable of, as the Gunners sit at the top of the Premier League with a very long unbeaten run.
The financial power that Arsenal have, equipped with the intelligence of their current boss has given the side a very realistic chance of getting back to the top of Premier League and mounting a very strong challenge in Europe.
Wenger has always thrived when he’s been right under pressure, with a point to prove and a challenge to face.
His reluctance to speak about his future and a new contract is not a sign of worry or a sign that he’s going to leave. It’s a simple sign that he doesn’t even see it as an issue, with his signature a formality unless something goes drastically wrong behind the scenes at the club.
His current Arsenal team may only grow and get stronger.
He’s broken the seal in terms of spending a lot of cash on a single player in the form of Mesut Ozil and he’s only just starting to see how Arsenal can be sustainable in a financial sense.
His long term commitment to the club would make it baffling why he would leave at a time when there is so much potential at the Emirates and a few questions left that he needs to address.
PSG are one of the only sides that could realistically talk someone like Wenger out of his Arsenal commitment.
The cash they have at their disposal and the project they represent to hold off Monaco and to win the Champions League is an enormous challenge and an exciting one, unlikely to be bettered anywhere around Europe.
In terms of what a manager like Wenger would be looking for, PSG tick every box; a challenge, big name players, resources and a solid financial and support base.
Therefore, if PSG can’t tempt him away, it could mean he’s destined to stay at Arsenal until he retires or until he’s given the boot and told to move on by the powers that be.
In short, if PSG can’t do enough to tempt him away, not many other sides will have even a fraction of a chance and that’s undoubtedly a positive for the Gunners.
How long do you think Wenger will go on at the club?
