Juventus consider massive offer for Arsenal captain van Persie
Serie A champions Juventus could be set to trump Premier League pair Manchester City and Manchester United by making a huge offer for Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, the Daily Mirror has reported.
The trio have been linked with van Persie throughout the summer, after the Netherlands international announced he would not be extending his contract with the Gunners, sparking off a series of bids for the 28-year-old. All have thus far been rejected but Juventus are said to be readying another offer that could tempt Arsenal into parting with their captain.
Juventus will reportedly hand over a £20m transfer fee for van Persie and pay the forward £190,000 per week after tax for the next five years - or what the Mirror describes as a £70m deal. The newspaper adds that Juventus have promised to top any offer made by Manchester United, who are said to be confident of landing the Dutchman.
