Arsenal boss Wenger rejected Florentino's Real Madrid three times

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger rejected THREE offers from Real Madrid to take charge next season.

The Mirror says Real Madrid president Florentino Perez claims Wenger was desperately close to quitting Arsenal and taking over at the Bernabeu stadium.

Perez launched a long campaign to bring in Wenger. However, Real's illegal approaches for Wenger are likely to infuriate the Arsenal board.

Real's attempts to snatch Wenger came to a head after Arsenal shareholders criticised the Frenchman at a stormy shareholders meeting last month after a fourth consecutive season without a trophy.
