London, Oct 19(ANI): Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has revealed that he had turned down a 10 million-pound a year offer from Spanish giants Real Madrid to pursue his dreams of winning the Champions League with Arsenal.

According to reports, Madrid had approached Wenger with a 10million pound-a-year offer last summer, but he felt duty bound to stay with the Gunners where he earns half that amount.

Wenger is now the longest-serving manager in Arsenal history and he admits to looking at his own legacy, feeling a Champions League title is a necessity for him.

"If we don't win a trophy in the next two years, it'll be my fault," The Sun quoted Wenger, as saying.

"I'd have had a much higher salary at Real. But, I've earned a very good living in London. I dream of leaving an imprint at Arsenal and winning the Champions League," he added.(ANI)
