Arsenal consider selling van Persie this summer

Arsenal could move to end speculation over the future of Robin van Persie by selling the Netherlands striker this summer, the Daily Mirror has reported.

The newspaper adds that the Gunners will allow their captain to leave the club if he returns from Euro 2012 with the intention of forcing his departure from the club. The Mirror add that while Arsene Wenger wants to keep van Persie at the Emirates Stadium even if he does not sign a new contract, if van Persie agitates for a move Arsenal will sell rather than have a disgruntled player to contend with for 12 months.

Juventus are said to be van Persie’s only real option if he does move on from Arsenal, after the player’s father declared his son will not play for another English team, ruling out Manchester City and Manchester United, who had been interested in the forward.

Bob van Persie continued that it would not make sense for van Persie to join Barcelona, since the Spanish side already have Lionel Messi, while Real Madrid have to sell Gonzalo Higuain before they buy another striker.

This is total rubbish. Rubbish from hell! The Mirror is creating imaginations from hell. They're quoting nobody, not even the so-called insiders. The truth is that Van Persie has a very good agent who perhaps could've advised him to delay the signing of a new contract so that he keeps his employers in total anxiety, which would force them to give him the biggest contract in Arsenal history, when he returns from the Euros. Van Persie clearly knows how much he owes Arsenal, having stayed by him for the seven years he was ravaged by injury. He knows how important he is to Arsenal Football Club, and his family does too, as reflected in the comments attributed to his mother and his wife. Shame on those who wish to see him leave because he WILL DEFINITELY STAY!
