Arsene Wenger has denied he has agreed a two-year deal with Paris Saint-Germain to manage the Ligue 1 side.
Recent reports have claimed the Parisiens had contacted Wenger with a view to replacing Unai Emery at the helm.
PSG have long been interested in a move for Wenger while Emery only took charge last summer after leaving Sevilla.
The club are currently three points behind Monaco in the table and in danger of losing their title while their Champions League challenge was brutally ended by Barcelona in a 6-5 aggregate win.
Emery’s position has therefore come under scrutiny and with Wenger’s future also uncertain it is little surprise to see the Frenchman linked with a move back to France.
However, Wenger has denied all reports and insists there is no truth in the speculation whatsoever.

“It is a false rumour. That is what you call fake news,” he said via Standard Sport.
“I formally deny it. It is not true.”
Wenger has taken the opportunity to leave the country during the international break but is yet to confirm his future plans despite announcing on Saturday that he has made his decision.
There is a growing feeling that Wenger will opt to stay for at least one more year with the latest reports claiming he is already planning for next season and wants to bring in Monaco starlet Kylian Mbappe and Alexandre Lacazette.
