There have been several reports over the past few months as to Arsene Wenger’s future at Arsenal.
It was revealed last month by Starsport that Wenger had agreed the terms of an extension [Contract details unknown] but the delay in officially announcing it led to fears about the Frenchman’s future.
But according to The Times, an outline agreement has been reached on a two-year-deal, which Wenger is expected to sign at the end of the season.
Initially Wenger was offered a three-year contract when negotiation began last year, but as it stands, the Frenchman will commit his future for two years instead.
Despite Arsenal’s 6-0 thrashing at the hands of Chelsea in the Premier League, which raised doubts over his future at the club, the report says, the club’s belief in their long-serving manager remains unwavering and there is no such requirement to win the FA Cup or finish in the top four of the Barclays Premier League to trigger the new deal.
The club expects Wenger to sign the new deal at the end of the season and the situation could change only if he walks away from the job, which is highly unlikely.
This report is no surprise considering statements made by the Arsenal boss in a recent report by the Daily times where the boss spoke about his future and the future of Arsenal. he said
“The expectation level and the impatience is there and I want to do well.
“My desire is to stay. It will be done soon, but I want now to focus on the end of the season.
“My commitment is full. I do not want to look somewhere else. I want to stay here. There shouldn’t be any uncertainty at all.”
