Arsenal manager, Arsene Wenger, has denied that he is set to sign a new deal at the club and described the stories as ‘absolutely false’.
The Frenchman has one more year on his current deal, but it was rumoured that the club wants him to sign a new two-year extension in October.
Wenger says he will only make a decision on his future at the end of next season.
“It is completely wrong,” he said at his Friday press conference, ahead of the season’s last game at home to Aston Villa.
“I don’t know where this comes from. You can treat that as an invention.
“It is absolutely false. They could have checked with the club and it would have been denied.
“I think about the next game. I have full commitment for as long as I am under contract.”
Asked if next season will determine whether he will extend his 20-year stay at the Emirates, Wenger replied: “Of course.
“What I focus on is to respect my contract and envisage what I will do after. I understand people are interested in that but it’s not important?
“I will see where the club stands at the end of my contract.”
