Former Arsenal boss Arsène Wenger is being touted as the next manager of Real Madrid following the unexpected departure of Zinedine Zidane on Thursday.
The Frenchman, who was at the English club for over a decade, has reportedly long been admired at the Bernabeu.
Here are the best of the jokes as Arsène Wenger’s move to Madrid is considered:

To clarify: if you don't want to see Arsene Wenger, a twinkle in his eye and a nice little tan going, winning the Champions League title, then you need to have a word with yourself.

Something quite poetic if Wenger ends up at Real Madrid coaching all the players he nearly bought. Ronaldo, Benzema, Bale, all the lads. Like a Marvel post-credits scene.
