However things could have been different if the Frenchman left with PSG in contact with him about taking over from Unai Emery.

Asked on who tried to appoint him this summer, Wenger told French broadcasters Telefoot: “There have been contacts with PSG.”

When asked why he was nervous about committing the next two years of his managerial career to the Gunners, Wenger added: “Yes I hesitated about signing a new contract for personal reasons.

"I have been at Arsenal for 20 years and I ask myself all the time if I should continue to run the club.

“And also because we struggled a lot last season. Coaching a different club would be possible.”
