What are the odds on Arsene Wenger being next PSG manager?

It seems like the only possible destination for Wenger after he leaves Arsenal

Sometimes it feels like things are written in the stars.

The football world was rocked by the news that Arsene Wenger was leaving Arsenal a week ago.

Unai Emery announced he would be leaving PSG at the end of the season to somewhat less fanfare.

But now the stars of world football could have aligned in such a way that Wenger is going to walk into the only possible job he could take after more than 20 years at Arsenal.

With both managers leaving their posts in the summer it would be no surprise to see Wenger take the hot seat in Paris for one final flourish.

After having to deal with the likes of Marouane Chamakh and Yaya Sanogo during his time at the Emirates no-one would begrudge him a season with Neymar and Kylian Mbappe, would they?

It would be the perfect next step for Wenger to move back to France and get to work with some real young talent, win a couple of trophies and have a real crack at finally lifting the elusive Champions League trophy.

It would be a chance for Wenger to show his methods are still capable of winning titles and if it brought the Champions League to Paris then the Qatari owners would be forever in his debt.

Wenger could then bow out of football with his head held high and party of his credibility restored.

The perfect job right?

Well, Sun Bets have priced Wenger becoming the next PSG manager at 4/1.

However, it might not work our if the Frenchman does move back to the number one club in his home country.

You can imagine a scenario where Neymar begins to lose respect for his manager early in the season and leads a mutiny with Mbappe against Wenger’s methods leading to uproar in the dressing room.

Fragile from a poor end to his career at Arsenal losing to Atletico in the Europa League and failing to qualify for the Champions League, Wenger cannot control the players and the season falls into tragedy before it has even started.

It would be entertaining either way.
