Why Luis Enrique could miss out on becoming new Arsenal manager – report
Luis Enrique's high wage demands could price him out of a move to Arsenal this summer, say reports
Luis Enrique is in danger of pricing himself out of the Arsenal manager’s job, according to reports in the British media.
The Daily Mirror is reporting that the former FC Barcelona boss, who has been touted as a target for the north London club, has asked for a staggering £15m after tax from the Gunners.
Arsenal have not yet confirmed a successor for Arsene Wenger after the Frenchman confirmed that he would be stepping down at the end of the season.
Enrique has been strongly linked with the job, but the latest reports suggest that his wage demands could be a sticking point in negotiations.
However, the story claims that Enrique does remain on Arsenal’s shortlist for their new manager, despite his high wage demands.
The same report says that Juventus manager Max Allegri is still a candidate to take over from Wenger at Arsenal as the Gunners continue their search for the Frenchman’s replacement.
Arsenal played their final home game under Wenger at the north London side on Sunday as they wrapped up a comfortable 5-0 win over Burnley in front of their home fans.
The Gunners will have to settle for another season without Champions League football next term after they missed out on a top-four finish once again.
