Wenger set for crunch June meeting with Gazidis
Arsene Wenger will be holding one of his most significant meetings with the club’s hierarchy this summer.
The occasion, reported to be held after the completion of this campaign will take place primarily between the Frenchman and the club’s chief executive Ivan Gazidis, including selected members of the Arsenal board.
Wenger will be out of contract at the club by this time next year following the 2013-14 season, but the meeting will not be all about the future of the the Gunners’ boss.
Essential matters like the progress of the team and possible transfer moves will be discussed when the men gather in June, but as far as Wenger’s contract situation is concerned, the club is unwilling to offer any new deal just yet.
The 63-year-old last renewed his contract at the Emirates in August 2010 in a very profitable three-year extension which put him amongst the highest earning managers in the game.
Wenger has not only attracted strong criticism from certain frustrated Arsenal fans in recent times but some strong interest too from PSG over a return to France. Arsenal chairman Peter Hill-Wood though, has already labelled rumours about the Frenchman moving back to his country as “nonsense”.
