Arsene Wenger 'to replace Gennaro Gattuso as AC Milan manager'

Arsene Wenger 'to replace Gennaro Gattuso as AC Milan manager'

Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has been in touch with Real Madrid eggheads over the Los Blancos vacant managerial role after Julen Lopetegui was sacked last week.

It is believed that Wenger has been negotiating with the Serie A side for some weeks and talks have nearly reached a conclusion.

"If I would sign somewhere I would tell you but it's wrong news".

It is said that they've been in talks with Wenger over the past few weeks.

He added: 'I cannot master the rumours, I can only master what I do in my life.

Interestingly, former Arsenal and Milan man Mathieu Flamini stated on Tuesday that his old boss would be a ideal fit for the Serie A side should the move have come to pass. I don't want to lie and that's why I can't give you any information.

At the last count, the 69-year-old Wenger has also being linked with AC Milan managerial job. "He proved it for many years", he said. I think he would be great for AC Milan.

However, while he recently said he is keen to return to football management at the start of 2019, Wenger has denied that he is set to be appointed at the San Siro. "At the moment I'm having a good rest and I watch football a lot". I don't know where I will be.

Wenger previously said he planned to make his return in January, but did not rule out taking up a boardroom role or coaching job with an worldwide side.
