Arsene Wenger's future has become the subject of intense speculation in recent weeks. The Arsenal manager recently claimed that, regardless whether he stays with the Gunners, he wants to manage for four more years. So the question must be asked, if Wenger finally does end his 20-year association with Arsenal, where will he go next? Here's four possible destinations... Unai Emery was brought in to Paris Saint-Germain to win big in Europe, as well as to continue PSG's domestic dominance. While...
Unai Emery was brought in to Paris Saint-Germain to win big in Europe, as well as to continue PSG's domestic dominance.
While they may have smashed Barcelona 4-0 in the first leg of the Champions League last 16, PSG crumpled like a teenager's first relationship in the return, getting trounced 6-1 and going out on away goals. They also trail Monaco in the league by three points at this stage.
That is not good enough for a club whose minimum expectation is to dominate domestically and take the next step in Europe. Speculation has already started over Emery's future and until Wenger makes public his future plans.
PSG have long coveted Arsene Wenger. Moving to Paris would give him a chance to prove to his doubters that he still has what it takes, as well as giving him one final attempt at winning the Champions League.
Due to the money on offer, China is always a possibility when anyone's future is being discussed.
The Chinese Super League currently boasts Sven-Goran Eriksson, Marcello Lippi, Andre Villas-Boas and Luiz Felipe Scolari. Wenger would certainly be targeted by clubs looking to bring another big name manager to the league.
However Wenger is, if anything, principled to a fault, and whether he would be comfortable taking a large payday to be a part of everything that he has for so long stood against is doubtful.
Having recently been purchased by Suning Holdings, Inter Milan are looking to re-establish themselves at the very top of European football. Inter sit just outside the Champions League places in Serie A with Stefano Pioli as manager.
The new owners have already proven themselves to be trigger happy, and should they miss out on the Champions League (which is looking likely) or even the Europa League, then Pioli's place could be called into question.
Wenger would be a marquee manager, and the opportunity to re-establish an old power at the top of the game and add a Serie A title to his medal haul might be attractive to him.
Barcelona are trailing Real Madrid in the Spanish title race at the moment and are already looking for a new manager for next season, following Luis Enrique's confirmation that he will step down at the end of the season.
Despite his recent struggles at Arsenal, Wenger remains a top level manager, and is well thought of on the continent.
His values of nurturing youth and playing expansive passing football would sit well with the Barcelona faithful, not to mention managing Barcelona would surely be highly attractive to Wenger himself.
