The Newcastle boss has been linked with a move to Arsenal in recent weeks, but would surely be tempted by such a massive salary in China.

Carlos Tevez earns around £632,000-a-week for Shanghai Shenhua while Andre Villas-Boas is the best paid club manager in the Chinese Super League.

Villas-Boas earns £11 million-a-year at Shanghai SIPG but Bentiez would far out earn the former Chelsea boss with £30 million-a-year should he make the switch.

Benitez is the latest name in a string of managers who have been linked with taking over from Wenger, but the Spaniard has already insisted talks over his own future will not begin until the summer.

Wenger has been offered a two-year extension on his current deal which expires in the summer, but has yet to sign the new contract.
