Reports are surfacing that Jose Mourinho might be making his way out of the Santiago Bernabeau. Allegedly, Mourinho is tired of the Real Madrid scene, his fall out with some of the players—including Sergio Ramos and Iker Casillas—and perhaps the inability to beat Barcelona. 

The Daily Mail has reported that, along with German coach Joachim Löw, Arsene Wenger is on a two-man shortlist to replace Jose Mourinho. 

Wenger turned down a move to Real Madrid in 2009, deciding instead to stick with Arsenal. However, perhaps he too might get tired of fans questioning his tactics.

Face it, Arsene Wenger is no longer a fan-favorite at the Emirates.

After six long seasons without silverware, it seems that Arsenal fans have had enough. Only recently, the Frenchman was booed by the Arsenal faithful after subbing out Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for Andrei Arshavin, a decision that seemingly cost Arsenal the match against Manchester United.

In turn, Wenger unleashed his fury with the fans. 

Perhaps a change of scene for both managers might do the trick. 

What do you think might be best? Leave your opinions! 

I'm still a huge fan of Arsene Wenger. He has led Arsenal to a strong finish every year and has held them in trophy contention every season. He is still a splendid manager. It's sometimes simply difficult to compete when other clubs—like Chelsea and Manchester City—get a huge cash injection.

I still feel that Wenger is a tactical genius, and if Arsenal let him go, they will lose a great visionary and a personality that is required at a place like the Emirates.
