Monaco willing to pay Wenger £22M-a-year to quit Arsenal
AS Monaco are putting together a bumper package to tempt Arsene Wenger away from Arsenal. The Daily Mail says Monaco are prepared to offer Wenger a staggering £12.4million a year, after tax, to take over from Claudio Ranieri at the end of the season.
Though the Arsenal manager has turned down overtures from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain, Monaco have been encouraged by the uncertainty surrounding his future at the Emirates and are ready to tempt him with a salary equivalent to £22m in the UK - three times the £7.5m he currently earns.
Though Arsenal are planning their summer transfers and pre-season training on the basis that he will stay, even those close to the manager think he has yet to make up his mind.
