Villas-Boas will simply be keeping the Parc des Princes hot-seat warm for Wenger.
PSG are still keen to appoint Arsenal’s Arsene Wenger as boss next summer despite interest in his north London rival Andre Villas-Boas, reports the Evening Standard.
Wenger has just one year remaining on his current deal at the Emirates Stadium and the Frenchman is committed to seeing through his vision at Arsenal after years of financial constraints created by the move from Highbury.
But the Ligue 1 champions have plenty to offer the 63-year-old next summer if the season ahead proves as frustrating as recent campaigns.
Wenger shares a good relationship with Parisiens’ owner Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani, the Emir of Qatar, and acted as an adviser when the billionaire decided to enter football.
With current head-coach Carlo Ancelotti poised to join Real Madrid and Wenger unavailable, PSG have turned to Tottenham’s Villas-Boas and do not view his £10m release clause as an issue
But it appears the 35-year-old Portuguese, who would never have remained at a club for more than one season should he leave Spurs, will only be keeping the seat warm for Wenger.
There is the possibility that Wenger could take up a director of football role at the Parc des Princes should Ancelotti’s successor prove a hit in his first season, which could throw up the interesting possibility of the current Tottenham manager working under the current Arsenal manager in the French capital in 2014/5.
