Former Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has broken his silence on reports linking him to AC Milan as Gennaro Gattuso's replacement at the San Siro.

Earlier in the week, Wenger was tipped to end his short hiatus from football management after reportedly agreeing a deal with the Serie A side.

However, the French tactician has emphatically denied the reports, rubbishing them as 'fake news.'

Be that as it may, Wenger has always made it clear he will return to football in some capacity, but refuted he was close to joining Milan.

"The only thing I can say is, it’s fake news. If I signed somewhere I would tell you. It’s wrong," Wenger said on BEIN Sports.
"I cannot master the rumours, I can only master what I do in my life. That’s wrong as well. At the moment, I’m only just focused on doing well for BEIN Sport, and that’s not easy," he added.

The 69-year-old stepped down as Arsenal manager last summer, thereby ending his 22-year reign at the Emirates.

He previously hinted at making his return in January, but did not rule out taking up a boardroom role or coaching job with a top side.

Since his departure from Arsenal, a host of European clubs are said to have approached him, with Bayern Munich and Real Madrid considering hiring a new manager.
