"Of course, because you're talking about Arsenal Football Club, and it's a big football club, it's an honor, but I have never been in touch".

French League outfit Paris Saint-Germain have shown interest in hiring the outgoing Gunners manager, but as a general manager of the club as reported by Jonathan Johnson for ESPN FC, while Borussia Dortmund could be searching for a new manager in the summer.

Arsene Wenger travels to Old Trafford as Arsenal manager for the last time this Sunday (April 29), and rarely has a match between the two Premier League giants mattered less.

But Keane believes the transition away from Wenger will not serve as the same kind of detrimental shock to Arsenal as it was with Man United.

Arsenal host Atletico Madrid as their Europa League campaign reaches the business end. Wenger's best XI or United's ultimate Premier League line-up?

"He's managed to do so much in the last three, four years winning the Europa League, La Liga and two Champions League finals with a team that wasn't up there moneywise". The return of Diego Costa has given them a spark that his presence did earlier when they won the La Liga in 2014 and Simeone would be hoping that his return is the beginning of a special time for the club again.

With Arsene Wenger announcing that he will be stepping down at the end of the season, there is widespread speculation of who will eventually take the mantle from the Frenchman.

Mourinho: My critics want to kill me if I lose!
Mourinho said: "Can we improve next season?" "Whether Manchester City keep this level or improve this level, only they can say". Pogba has been linked with a transfer to several clubs such as a Paris Saint-Germain and also a possible return to Juventus .

"Honestly it's not something which will stop me doing what I am doing at the moment".

Tributes have been flooding in for departing Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger.

If he respects me even 50 per cent of what I respect him we can even be friends in the future.

Arsenal then found joy attacking down the Croatia international's flank, with Alexandre Lacazette twice going close to the opening goal.

Mourinho is therefore confident his time at the club has been a success, claiming there was an acceptance before his arrival that they could not guarantee a challenge for honours, despite them having won the FA Cup in Van Gaal's last match in charge.

Wenger will have to hope his key men are in top form if his side are to take a positive result to Madrid for next week's second leg, thus keeping alive his dream of a flawless send-off.
