Man United reportedly wanted Wenger to replace Sir Alex Ferguson

SPORTS By Game Yetu | October 4th 2016 | 1 min read

Arsene Wenger was sounded out to become Manchester United boss in 2002, but sensationally rebuffed the Red Devils.

That is according to the Daily Star, who say a tentative approach was made for the Frenchman's services by the Old Trafford giants when Sir Alex Ferguson initially planned to retire.

However, Fergie reversed his decision before the start of the next campaign and went on to win a host of other titles during his United stay.

Wenger confirmed earlier this month he had rejected three approaches from PSG out of 'loyalty' to the Gunners.
