Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has left the door open for a summer move to PSG after saying he will not make a decision over his contract until near the end of the season.

Wenger will enter the last six months of his contract, and there had already been reports this season could be his last at the Emirates, with French champions PSG a keen admirer of the 67-year old.

And he appears to have opened the door for a possible return to France, after stalling to make a decision on his future.

The Frenchman has been the Arsenal boss for 20 years, and amid speculations over his future, he has said he will not be making any decisions until sometime in the spring.

“I will judge where I stand in spring and make my decision then,” said Wenger.

“The club is free to make their decision. We are in the same boat. I do not have any rights just because I have been here a long time.”

Wenger also denies claims leaving things late affects the club’s long-term planning. He said: “I don’t think that is a problem. There are plenty of managers who have arrived at the end of their contract.

“It has happened to me before. I sometimes signed for longer contracts in March or April.”

Wenger is arguably Arsenal’s most successful manager, but he hasn’t recorded much success lately, with only two FA Cup titles to his credit in the last 12 years, and the Premier League remains elusive since their triumph in 2004.
