According to France Football, a deal that would see Arsene Wenger replace Gennaro Gattuso as AC Milan manager is close to being completed.
The iconic manager has been out of the game since leaving Arsenal last summer, after 22 years at the helm in north London. However, the 69-year-old has recently insisted that he will be back working in football at the beginning of 2019 – though he gave no clues as to whereabouts – as reported by Sky Sports.

Given his long reign at Highbury and the Emirates Stadium as Arsenal manager, plenty of Gunners fans will be interested to know where the club’s long-serving leader will wind up next. Despite a difficult last few years at Arsenal, Wenger remains a legend to many of the club’s fans and a huge figure in the history of the Premier League.
After the rumours of Wenger’s San Siro takeover emerged, plenty of Arsenal fans took to Twitter to express their excitement over the Frenchman’s apparently imminent return to the game…
Arsene, Cesc and Ramsey reunion at Milan needed. Here we go Arsene and Milan.

This would make me very happy, a legendary manager in charge of a European powerhouse.
At Arsenal he was always limited in what he could achieve with funds and stadium cost/move. Good luck Wenger!
