Arsene Wenger: No new deal on the table

Arsene Wenger claims reports of him signing a new two-year deal at Arsenal are “completely wrong”.

The Times on Thursday reported that another two-year extension is on the cards for the 66-year-old Frenchman.

They claimed that majority shareholder Stan Kroenke was pushing for his manager to stay on at the club and that Kroenke wanted Wenger to commit himself to the Gunners by October this year.

But Wenger, whose current contract runs to the end of next season, dismissed the report at his press conference on Friday.

“It is completely wrong. I don’t know where this comes from,” said Wenger.

“You can treat that as an invention. It is absolutely false. They could have checked with the club and it would have been denied.

“I think about the next game. I have full commitment for as long as I am under contract.”

Wenger, who The Sun claimed in January was poised to sign a new long-term contract this summer, admitted that next season would shape his future at The Emirates.

He was then asked if he had decided his future after his current deal.

Wenger replied: “No. The focus is to respect my contract.

“I have extended my contract at a period where it was vital for the club. I will see where I am personally and where the club stands.”
