Report: Wenger was waiting on PSG, will sign Arsenal renewal

Arsene Wenger

There are rumours in Italy that Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger was hoping for an offer from Paris Saint-Germain but will now stay put.

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is waiting until after the FA Cup final to decide his future, but rumours suggest he will commit to the Gunners as an offer from Paris Saint-Germain never materialised.

Wenger has been at Arsenal since 1996 and has become somewhat synonymous with the North London outfit, but there have been suggestions that this might be his final campaign with the club.

The French tactician's contract expires at the end of the season and he is yet to enter into negotiations over a renewal, instead insisting that he would deal with that after the FA Cup final.

But Italian website Tuttomercatoweb is convinced that Wenger will now stay on at Arsenal because he never received the offer he wanted from French giants Paris Saint-Germain.

According to the rumours, Wenger held off any decision on his Arsenal future while he waited for PSG to make clear whether or not they would stick with Laurent Blanc.

After PSG's Champions League exit at the hands of Chelsea, Blanc's position looked less certain, but the ex-defender has now signed a new deal in Paris and so Wenger is expected to stick with Arsenal.

It is also suggested that Wenger may have been tempted should Monaco make a proposal, but they instead seem to be considering Zinedine Zidane and Jorge Jesus of Benfica if they are to decide to axe current boss Claudio Ranieri despite finishing second in Ligue 1.
