Arsene Wenger has turned down a huge £30million a year offer from an unnamed Chinese club, according to reports.
The French man’s contract expires at the end of the season and his future is currently up in the air because of his refusal to sign a new deal.
The Gunners have made attempts to extend his contract but he has so far ignored them, insisting he wants to wait until April before making a decision on his future.
With the uncertainty surrounding his future yet unresolved, a Chinese Super League side has tried to take advantage of the situation but The Telegraph via Football365 claims Wenger turned down the opportunity of moving to China.
The name of the Chinese club that approached Wenger wasn’t revealed but the report claims the French man was offered a deal twice worth Pep Guardiola earns at Man City.
Guardiola is currently the highest earning football manager at £15m a year and for Wenger to reject an offer double that figure shows how much desire is left in the French man.
Obviously he wants to continue managing in Europe where he can continue to compete with other big clubs and challenging for top titles. It does mean he still has the ambition to continue managing a top team like Arsenal. However, things haven’t been working out for the 67 year old as he has failed to win a major title in the last decade.
Wenger does have a two year contract extension on his table already and it remains to be seen if he will take up the option of signing a new deal. From all indications, he looks likely to stay beyond the current campaign unless fans pressure continue to rise.
