Arsene Wenger has promised us time and again that he will honor his contract, has criticized players for breaking their contracts, and has two years left on his current contract, so why would he be caught saying that Real Madrid would be “interesting?”
First of all, he didn’t say “I would be interested in going to Real” he actually said “A Florentino Perez project is inevitably interesting for all coaches.” That’s a far cry from saying that he’s personally interested.
Second, this is a story that the press put out pretty much every year. Last year it was “Henry left, Wenger has 12 months left on his contract, he’s leaving!” Some articles, put out by Usmanov, even had Wenger angrily asking to re-appoint David Dein or he would leave.
Third, as far as I can tell this story is being put out by people who are friendly to Usmanov and his dirty money. Usmanov recons he can get a few unhappy supporters in his pocketbook by linking Wenger to a “Galacticos” project. But again, note the full quote from Wenger “I am under contract with Arsenal and totally concentrated on my objectives here.”
He’s not leaving, and we shouldn’t be duped by this simplistic attempt by Red and White to sway us to their agenda.
