PSG consider Wenger, Monchi as new sporting director


ESPN: Paris Saint-Germain want Arsene Wenger to become their general manager after the January transfer window, with sporting director Antero Henrique’s future under threat. Former Arsenal manager Wenger would be a likely replacement for Henrique, who has failed to secure deals for several PSG transfer targets. Wenger has told PSG he is keeping his options open, and although he would prefer a coaching position he has not ruled out the possibility of joining them if a significant role became available. The 68-year-old is unlikely to make any decision until nearer Christmas — and the Ligue 1 champions would look to replace Henrique after the January window has closed. Roma sporting director Monchi is another option to replace Henrique.
