After a period as long as Wenger was in charge of an elite team, something on the other hand, quite unusual in modern football, where projects do not usually endure too many stumbling blocks, it was foreseeable that the postWenger era was hard in its beginnings and that it would be necessary to give your relay time to adapt to the centennial club. Unai Emery is having that time, as it is in its second season, although it may not be too much ahead of the Gunner team.
The board, headed by its sports director, Raul Sanllehi, seems determined to hire Luis Enrique to take the reins of the team from the month of January and already know Asturian requests to accept the project: 227 million euros to renew a workforce that does not convince the master and of which he only grants the status of non-transferable to his two strikers: Alexandre Lacazette and Emerick Aubameyang. Also Luis Enrique he would like to have Belgian midfielder Radja Nainggolan on his team, player who already trained in his stage as coach of Rome. Surely for wanting to want to have Leo Messi in their ranks, but dreams dreams are …
As if all this were not enough, Luis Enrique has informed them that his salary should be 10.2 million euros (the same as Arsene Wenger after 22 years training the club), which would make him one of the highest paid technicians in Europe.
Arsenal is studying the proposal made by Luis Enrique and his sports director will decide in the coming weeks if he is betting on him or looking for a plan C to replace his, it seems that for a short time, plan A. Unai's time is running out, he knows it and has between eyebrow and eyebrow to reverse the situation because he knows that after passing through the PSG without great successes, a new project in which he did not succeed would make him lose a price in the face of future contracts. Unai works hard to avoid having to say his now mythical “Gud Ivining” for the last time.
