Van Persie Speaks Out On Real Madrid Interest

Evening Gooners. Our beloved captain Robin van Persie has been quoted as responding to rumours linking him with a move to Spanish giants Real Madrid.

ESPN quote the Dutchman as saying he’s happy to hear of interest from Real Madrid and that he would be excited to play there, but he doubts Arsenal would be willing to sell.

If the quotes on are accurate, it’s not good to hear RVP openly discussing a potential move midway through a season. Here’s what van Persie is supposed to have said:

“I am happy to hear of the interest of a club as important as Real Madrid,”

“Of course I would be excited to play there.” However, he added: “I do not think Arsenal will be willing to negotiate.”

Van Persie quoted on ESPN, originally taken from Marca.

This comes off the back of reports in yesterday’s Daily Mail claiming Real are lining up a £30m summer move for the 28-year-old, a figure that i personally find laughable given the quality of Van Persie and his current form.

With 22 goals in just 24 league games this season, and at the peak of his career, i would be gutted if Arsenal lost van Persie for anything less than £50m. We got absolutely walked over by Barcelona for the Fabregas deal and IF van Persie decides it’s time to move on in the summer, we need to get top-dollar for him.

However, i am suspicious over these supposed quotes. They originate from Spanish-based newspaper Marca, who regularly run transfer stories relating to Real Madrid and i wouldn’t be surprised if his words have been twisted in some way. Take these reports with a pinch of salt is my advice.

    It’s bollocks.

    Quote RVP on Twitter “Contrary to reports in Spain I have NEVER spoken to Marca newspaper and never gave any interview. Enjoy your day” unquote.

    Sleep easy Gooners!

    I think if against our wishes he does go ( and I cant say I blame him as he has seen the squad decimated around him over the last few years) I think if madrid offer 30 million + Benzema I think a deal could be done as we will get a top striker and hopefully Hazard or such like to pose more threat in the last third

    Marca is the spanish equivalent of a certain current spud manager in terms of honesty and accuracy.

    I wish all who ‘write’ for it and all who ‘read’ it have their fingers turn in to chorizos. It’s to be expected of a financially bankrupt nation. The only surprising thing is that it took so long for financial incompetence to catch up with the country’s moral bankruptcy. Do not forget that royal madrid was franco’s team, facista scum. Barca are also world champion cheats, although Messi is a genius.
