PSG president Al-Khelaifi: Wenger a close friend. He told me one thing I'll never forget...

PSG president Nasser Al-Khelaifi admits he's close to Arsene Wenger.

The former Arsenal manager has been linked with a management role at PSG - and Al-Khelaifi concedes there could be something brewing.

He told L'Equipe : "He is a close friend, I have a lot of admiration and respect for him and everything he has done in football.

"He's a big man. This is one of the first people I spoke to before buying the club. And he told me one thing I'll never forget: 'You buy a diamond and you have to cut it and make it shine'.

"Arsene, I do not know what he's going to do, but he's going to have a lot of offers. Today, the sports director is Antero Henrique and he will stay."
