thumbnail Hello,

Reports have linked the highly rated pair with exits from their current clubs, with keen interest in their services from elsewhere in the A-League

Speculation is growing on the futures of Ange Postecoglou and Graham Arnold next A-League season.

Postecoglou has declined to comment on rumours he is set for a return to home to coach Melbourne Victory, but the reports are threatening to overshadow his Brisbane Roar side's preparations for Sunday's A-League grand final.

Postecoglou has reportedly bought a property in Malvern in Melbourne's east, with speculation he has already signed a $1 million deal with Victory.

Postecoglou is just one season into a three-year deal at the Roar, but Victory are said to be willing to pay for the former South Melbourne coach's release.

"People can speculate, and it's one of those things where people can say pretty much whatever they want and no one is going to refute it," Postecoglou said on Sunday. "That allows people to make assumptions and reasons and come to conclusions. When my commitments are over and we're in the off-season, it's then we'll be making the decision."

Arnold, meanwhile, could have coached his last match at the Central Coast Mariners, with the former Socceroos coach reportedly Sydney FC's No.1 target to fill the vacancy created by Vitezslav Lavicka's return to Europe.

The financial concerns of the Mariners means that - unless the much-mooted takeover from a Russian consortium takes place - they are unable to compete with the Sky Blues' offer.

But the Premiers' Plate-winning coach is still to agree a deal with Sydney, with the two parties still negotiating.

Will either Postecoglou or Arnold find new homes? And is it the right move?
