Arsenal boss Wenger emerges as contender for Monaco job

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger could be in line for a shock return to France with Monaco considering making an offer for him to become the world’s highest paid manager, according to the Daily Telegraph.

Wenger’s contract with Arsenal comes to an end this summer but the 64-year-old has continually stated that he will sign an extension after the FA Cup final against Hull City on May 17, which could represent the first trophy he wins at the club since 2004.

Meanwhile, Wenger has insisted that the outcome of the FA Cup final will not depend on whether he signs his contract. "We are focused on the Cup final. After that, yes, I will make an announcement," said Wenger.

"I told you many times, my word is my word and I'm from a period where you didn't need a pen to commit. It's not linked with the FA Cup at all."

Monaco are currently managed by former Chelsea boss Claudio Ranieri, who is set to lead them to a second-place finish in Ligue 1 in their first season back in the top-flight. The club are heavily backed financially, and the owners will discuss the Italian’s future at the end of the campaign.

Wenger has already managed Monaco, and guided them to the French title in 1988, the highest point of his seven years at Stade Louis II before moving to Japan.
