Van Persie tells Arsenal to spend if he is to stay

Arsenal’s star striker Robin van Persie has demanded that his club make further significant investment into improving the side, or risk losing him this summer, reports the Mirror.

According to the report, Dutch international van Persie is not interested in a new improved salary, even if it matches the reported £200,000 a week wages that Manchester City are willing to offer. Rather, the stumbling block appears to be that he does not believe the current reinforcements, including Lucas Podolski from Cologne, will be enough to help the north-London side to trophies, following a six year absence of silverware at the Emirates.

A source told the Mirror: “Arsenal know it's not about money. Even if they offered Van Persie what City can pay it would make no difference if he doesn't believe the club can challenge for trophies.”

Van Persie, who is set to play a prominent role in Holland’s Euro 2012 campaign in June, has had his most prolific season in front of goal for Arsenal, netting 46 goals in 48 appearanes in all competitions. He was in similarlarly good form for his country in their European Championship qualifying campaign, scoring six goals in six games.

I'm putting these questions 2 Mr Wenger & the management & whoever that has the answer.Why is it that Arsenal dont buy top,tough & matured players?Why is it that Arsenal tend 2 sell off their best players,i mean players that has come 2 peak & refuse 2 replace them wt even better ones?Is it wrong 4 Arsenal 2 have 2 standing 11?When will Arsenal become a REAL contender & not a pretender?Arsenal is suppose 2 be like Barcelona of spain due 2 their pattern of playing football but it's jst not the case,why?of course not all the players are strong enof 2 compete,thereby lacking winning mentality,also when injury sets in there will be serious failures,so when will Arsenal put a stop 2 all these nonsense & madness?4 like 6 seasons Arsenal has been nowhere near the real champions like Man-u,Chelsea,Barca,Real madrid & just of recent Man-city bcoz Arsenal has been Trophiless.I dont blame RVP 4 threatening 2 leave, if Arsenal refuse 2 sign in quality players.Arsenal club is seriously letting its Glory & Fans down.I jst pray Arsenal catches up wt the Best of the Best.UP UP GUNNERS!

Arsenal FC is a great disappointment, the club lacked the aspiration to challenge for silverwares. The club has led the fans and supporters down. If they cannot convince their talisman to stay, then ardent supporters of the club must be mentally prepared that the club is no longer in hunt for trophies. Their main interest every season is merely qualifying for Champion League.

Am 100% behind RVP. At his prime he needs trophies not just....whatever. I can't blame the guy if he left just like Nasri. Wenger is the cause of it all, his failure to strengthen the team is putting the team behind, he is just the best coach in EPL but just too too too sturbon.

By Kelly sirai arsenal on 27 May 2012 at 18:49

Yes rvp u've said so,wenger do smthg plse!

By IKANDU HACKYM on 27 May 2012 at 13:36

By King Adetowale on 27 May 2012 at 13:05

If wenger is a good coach, let him keep our captain for us and sign more player for us. He shld stop going to france to look for player cos we av enough in England. Gunner 4life.

By muzora ismail on 27 May 2012 at 13:02
