Wenger reveals why he could be tempted to leave Arsenal

However, much to everyone's surprise, the Frenchman was awarded a new two-year deal, taking his stay in North London to nearly 23 years if he sees out his contract.

Arsenal prefer Lyon's Nabil Fakir now, and feel that he offers better value for money.

The Frenchman failed in an attempt to take England global Sterling to the Emirates Stadium in the summer but wants to revisit a potential swap deal with Alexis Sanchez when the transfer window re-opens.

Wenger, who has been with the Gunners since 1996 and is the longest-serving manager in the Premier League, has been under pressure in recent months in north London.

He added: "I believe the real experience to manage a team is on a daily basis".

Wenger has never managed at an global level, coaching instead at four clubs from Nancy to Arsenal.

So, a tired Wenger as England manager for Qatar 2022?

"Four or five weeks, it's a different experience, it's more concentrated".

Arsenal did finish second in the league in 2016, but only thanks to a late implosion from rival club Tottenham Hotspur-Wenger's team was too slow for Claudio Ranieri's champion Leicester City. "But I will stay in football of course".

Sanchez's contract runs out at the end of the season, meaning Wenger will have to consider selling for a cut-price in the New Year to avoid losing the Chilean for free. I haven't decided that, it's a fact that my life is linked with football, in what way [in the future] it will be linked with my physical state.

"I don't know in what kind of position, as a director, as a manager".
