Spanish Giants Line-up Summer Move For Robin van Persie

And so it starts. We all knew it was coming and it’s only going to get worse in the coming months. Yes, the rumours of Robin van Persie moving to the Spanish ‘giants’ has begun. 

The Daily Mail have reported today that Real Madrid have joined Barcelona in the hunt for our star striker, with the pair lining up summer moves for the Dutchman.

The report claims that Madrid are looking to offload Gonzalo Higuain and have identified Sergio Aguero or Van Persie as a replacement, with boss Jose Mourinho preferring RVP due to his versatility in being able to play anywhere across the front line.

It just never stops does it Gooners? Every year we have to go through constant rumours linking our star players with a move away, and more often than not it’s to one of Spain’s ‘big two’.

The Van Persie situation is an extremely worrying one, given that he will enter the final year of his contract in the summer and we don’t have a great track record of persuading players to sign extensions, do we?!

But, we knew the vultures would be circling especially given the 28-year-old’s stunning form this season. My only wish is that IF Van Persie does decide it’s time to move on, he goes abroad and doesn’t do a Nasri and join City for the money.

I think our captain has far more about him and would never join a league rival. He knows what it means to play for and captain Arsenal, so if god-forbid he does move on, i think we’ll see him in La Liga next season. But i have a gut feeling he’ll still be at Arsenal, not sure why, just a feeling.

Where will Van Persie be playing next season? Leave your opinions in the comments section below…

    I honestly believe that RVP loves the Arsenal deeply but wants to genuinely achieve success and win trophies. He is nearing the twilight if his career age wise, and has one last chance to achieve success in the form of winning a league or european trophy. You cannot question his loyalty to Arsenal who have stuck with him throughout his injury ridden time with the club, but you cannot expect a player of his quality to be satisfied with leading a club who’s sole ambition is to make a yealy profit to satisfy their debt and sell their star palyers for profit. This is the Arsenal business plan and it wont change until the Arsenal brand is no longer an attractive option for the worlds potential young stars, or until Arsene Wenger leaves the club. I have no doubt that eventually, the business prospective at Arsenal will change and the focus will once again be success on the pitch but unfortunately that time will not come soon enough to hold onto our talismanic striker.

      I dont understand why the business model would change if AW left? So the business model was made up from AW and not the board

    What indication has there EVER been that Van Persie wants to leave? He’s stalling to force the hand of the board in the transfer market and to capitalise on a wage increase, something he can do with other teams competing for his signature … and why not? It’s his last big contract.

    Arsenal will win 3-1.But Arsene Wenger must coution Ramsey to stop playing childish football and Arshavin should not start.
