Former Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is known to have made a great impact at the club before his retirement with results trophies and the signings of great players.

The North London outfit might have had great names like Thierry Henry, Dennis Bergkamp, Pires, Patrick Viera, and lots more but he had the opportunity to make Arsenal a home of world stars that never happened. He will always hold that as some achievements he failed to make.

It has been revealed that the likes of Lionel Messi, Gareth Bale, Zlatan Ibrahimovic were all available for a move to the North London outfit to work with Arsene Wenger but that never happened.

More to these names is the failure to capture world football best Cristiano Ronaldo who was on the verge of signing for Arsenal at age 18 in the summer of 2003 before going ahead to sign for Real Madrid.

France international Kylian Mbappe was also available to sign for Arsenal when he was at a younger age but that also did not happen.

If former Arsenal manager had brought in these names, there are chances that he would have won the Champions League over and over again but sadly speaking, he never did until his retirement from the club.
