'PSG and I have always been close'

In a recent interview with beIn Sports, former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admitted that he has close ties with the Parisian club, amid links between the two in recent weeks.

Wenger managed his last game for Arsenal against Huddersfield only a few days ago, but that hasn't kept his name out of the media craze. Many have thrown out a variety of suggestions for where the Frenchman will head next, including the current Ligue 1 champions.

Arsene has claimed that there has been no contact yet, but admitted that he is close to the club: "I have only just finished, so I have not taken a decision. There has been no contact [with PSG], so, for the moment, I am really staring at a blank page."

"We have always been close, and I even encouraged [ownership] to buy PSG at the time. I thought that with their means, there was something to be created, to do, in a city that loves football...They have done well there, they have started the job and I think that we are a little demanding of PSG today."

Wenger also notes that the owners of PSG cannot be disappointed with their team this year, despite an early exit from the Champions League: "PSG have completed a domestic clean sweep, but somehow it is not enough."

"You cannot build a club with the idea that anything less than Champions League success is bad. Clubs like Real Madrid went 15 or 18 years without it and they still survived."
