Arsenal Set to Offer Wenger New Contract

Ivan Gazidis

After an impressive start to the 2013/2014 season for Arsenal, Arsenal directors are out to ensure the man behind Arsenal’s good form Frenchman Arsene Wenger is rewarded with a new contract that ensures the Frenchman continues as the club’s longest serving manager. According to both Daily mail and daily mirror, Wenger whose contract is set to expire in the summer of 2014 is set to be offered a new contract that guarantees him 8 million pounds per season.

If the reports are true, the Frenchman will be getting an increment of £500,000-per-year on his current 7.5 million pounds per year deal. Earlier in the summer, Arsenal CEO Ivan Gazidis confirmed the club was prepare to give the French man a new contract.

However, according to John Cross of daily mirror, Arsenal directors are worried about Wenger insistence that he will like to see how this season spans out before he decides on if he is going to sign a new contract or not. The Frenchman’s insistence has alerted French champions PSG who have been on the trail of Wenger in the last 2 seasons. The French giants were on Wenger’s trail in the summer but failed as the Frenchman decided to continue his Arsenal project.
