Wenger refuses to rule out switch to Real Madrid

Arsenal London, May 18 (ANI): Arsenal’s coach Arsene Wenger has refused to rule out a summer switch to Spanish football giant Real Madrid.

The Gunners’ long-serving boss was coy when asked on French TV whether he had spoken to Madrid presidential candidate Florentino Perez.

Far from denying it, Wenger just said: “Please allow me to remain discreet on this matter.”

Perez is the overwhelming favourite to win next month’s presidential election at the Bernabeu.

“With Perez, the project will be greatly interesting for all the managers,” The Sun quoted Wenger, as saying.

Frenchman Wenger took over at Arsenal in September 1996 and has never walked out on a club before the end of his contract.

But this time, he would only say: “In general, I always go to the end of my contract.”

The report also claimed Wenger held a meeting with Perez in a hotel in Paris last Tuesday. But after the goalless draw with Manchester United on Saturday, Wenger insisted he was looking forward to challenging the Red Devils for the title next season.

Wenger has already told United boss Alex Ferguson: “We’ll be fighting you for the title next season.” (ANI)
