PSG will appoint Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger as manager next summer even if new boss Laurent Blanc wins the Ligue 1 title, according to a French journalist.
Wenger has one year remaining on his current deal at the Emirates Stadium and was linked with the Parc des Princes job earlier this summer.
But the Frenchman insisted he wanted to honour his contract in north London, despite his close personal relationship with PSG owner Nasser Al-Khelaifi.
However, it has been widely reported that the Ligue 1 champions remain keen on appointing the 63-year-old next summer and Blanc’s appointment on a one-year deal on Tuesday will do little to dispel such reports.
Blanc has the option of a second year on his contract, which the French club say is dependent on results.
But ESPN and Le Parisien journalist Julien Laurens believes that Blanc will be sacked even if he retains the title next season, if Wenger indicates his willingness to take the job.
