Hello and welcome to my Fifa 17 career mode story, this year I will be focusing my story solely on Arsenal over a 5 year period, the story begins with Arsene Wenger stepping away from his current position in the club and becoming a club ambassador as well as chief scout. Former Ajax assistant manager and Arsenal legend Dennis Bergkamp becomes the head coach of Arsenal with Belgium assistant coach and Arsenal's all time top scorer Theirry Henry becoming Bergkamp's no.2. Former Invincible legends Lehmann, Ljungberg and Pires return for coaching roles as the whole Arsenal background takes a different shape, all this will be revealed in the upcoming news, I hope you enjoy this journey.

    Arsene Wenger has stepped down for his current managerial role of Arsenal football club after almost 20 years, the Frenchman change the way we saw football here in England and will go down as one of the most influential managers of all time, Wenger will be known for his Invincible season along with his eye for talent bringing in unknown names and creating superstars.

    In the press conference Wenger said, "It was my desire to see out my contract however after discussions with the board and people close to me I feel it's best to give this club a fresh face, a different approach and I have a strong belief that the new manager coming in will bring that and more". Wenger also revealed he has had many opportunities over the years to leave Arsenal and even now however he states this is the club he loves and will remain here being a club ambassador as well as working behind the scenes becoming the chief scout, "It was something I enjoyed and these days I don't get as much time to be involved in the scouting but now that changes, I have an eye for talent and I hope to keep bringing future superstars to this great club.

    Arsenal Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis was also at the press conference beside Arsene and he wouldn't reveal who Wenger's successor will be but said 'It has been decided, stay tuned' by the sounds of things they have already made their decision and it's only a matter of time before they reveal it. Reports coming in suggest former players Bergkamp and Henry are high up in the bookies odds along with German manager Joachim Low and Bournemouth's Eddie Howe as front runners, more to follow.

    iirc you already did a Bergkamp career mode right? I think Eddie Howe is a dark horse for this job

    I've done a few Bergkamp stories all the way from Fifa 13 (That one was not very detailed at all because I time jumped from window to window for a couple of seasons) and the Fifa 16 one Bergkamp took over Leeds not Arsenal so this one will be different. I've already decided on Bergkamp being the manager too :)

    Big news coming out of Arsenal today as the whole structure changes as Arsene Wenger departs, the club have unveiled former Ajax assistant manager Dennis Bergkamp as the new manager, the former Dutch legend takes the hot seat with his striking partner Thierry Henry becomes his no.2 as assistant manager of both Arsenal and Belgium.

    Bergkamp took a few question in his first press conference earlier today, the main question in the room were signings and will there be investment after the club only bought Cech and Elneny in last season, his comments were, "Of course, I have already spoken with the board over this matter and we have a large budget available like our rivals, we all hear you, there are a few positions in the squad that need addressing and Wenger has left me a lot of information on his targets, firstly I need to get my feet under the table and go from there". Bergkamp was also asked about his long term goals with the club and he responded, "I want our academy to be the best in Europe, you look at Barcelona, even clubs in England I want us to bring through a core of English players that will bleed for this club, that is my goal". The new Arsenal manager finally revealed the new Arsenal captain and it will be French international Laurent Koscielny with Aaron Ramsey acting as vice captain.

    In addition to that Arsenal have also announced the arrival of former legends Pires, Ljungberg and Lehmann as official coaches of the club, Lehmann will take charge of goalkeeping while Ljungberg and Pires will work on the team as a whole along with other staff, Ljungberg has already had experience coaching the under 16's and Pires has been around the club for some time working with Wenger so both additions will be welcomed. Andries Jonker remains the head of the academy however there will be changes with how things are run as Bergkamp has already mention his goal to bring a core of English talents through.

    I don't want to bring back the whole XI plus Lauren isn't really involved in football anymore I don't think and Edu is a club director for a Brazilian club, the choices I went for were more influentual for the club and are or want to be in coaching roles irl ;)

    Great to see so many of the old players make a return. I'm eager to see what they do with this team. I'm expecting the treble by year 3 :*

    Yeah, it's a pretty good idea. As you said, I also believe the treble will come sooner or later. Probably more "sooner" than "later".

    My goal would be to do it in 3-5 years, I want to be on the same level as Madrid/Barca/Bayern when I end it :)

    Thanks guys also @Tekkonkinkreet I know I just wanted to explain why I chose the people I did.

    Arsenal begin their summer spending bringing in former M'gladbach and Switzerland captain Granit Xhaka for a £30m fee, the player signs a 5 year deal with the club and is expected to wear the number 29 shirt. Arsene Wenger had already been watching the midfielder for some time and Bergkamp has pounced on the chance to bring him in, saying 'he is a player Arsenal have been craving for while'. Xhaka will head off to the Euro's in France but is expected to join up with his new club for the Pre-Season tournament beginning late July.

    Three key Arsenal players leave the club for free this summer, former captain Mikel Arteta retires from football and if rumours are true he will join up with Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, Rosicky and Flamini also leave for free however these two players are expected to continue their footballing career elsewhere.

    Arsenal also complete the £800,000 signing of Japanese sensation Takuma Asano from Sanfrecce Hiroshima, the promising striker will immediately go out on loan to German club Stuttgart for the season, in addition to that Wojciech Szczęsny will remain on loan at Roma for the season.

    • The most sought after free agent worldwide, Ibrahimovic joins Manchester United on a 1 year deal.
    • Mats Hummels becomes another Dortmund star to join rivals Bayern Munich for £29.7m.
    • Sadio Mane exits Southampton to join Klopp's Liverpool for a massive £34m fee.
    • Another Dortmund superstar leaves this summer as Mkhitaryan becomes Mourinho's next signing at £26.3m.
    • One of the most promising youngsters around the world right now, Renato Sanches joins Bayern Munich for £29.7m however with add-ons the price could rise to almost £68m.

    Wow! I hadn't realized how much Bayern paid for Sanches. I mean totally worth it as that kid is a legend in the making, but still didn't realize it was that much :o great updates as always man. Are you gonna keep the window closed when you start and just stick with what they did in real life? I always like stories more that start out that way :)

    It's a shame Joachim Low wasn't named the new coach, then we could make jokes about how Arsenal has sunk to a new Low. :o Opening post looks great as do the updates. Should be a good CMS.
