PSG want to give Arsene Wenger his first full-time job since leaving Arsenal – by making him their general manager.
Frenchman Wenger has taken a break from management after leaving the Gunners at the end of last season following 22 years at the helm in north London.
But according to ESPN, Wenger could be back in football with Ligue 1 giants PSG close to getting rid of Antero Henrique.
The deal is likely to be put in place now but could wait until the January transfer window has been completed, with Henrique already negotiating moves for Stanislav Lobotka, Danilo Pereira and Sander Berge.
Henrique’s exit would also spark an exodus in the recruitment department in Paris.
The report says Wenger would be handed free rein to shape PSG’s youth system and transfers, although he would likely be throttled by FFP.
Although the three-time Premier League winner is thought to be looking for a coaching role rather than a backroom position.
PSG are also looking at Roma’s sporting director Monchi to take over as director of football.
