Real Madrid to bid £35m for Van Persie….sounds good to me!


By Fab4.

Spanish giants Real Madrid are considering a £35m move for Arsenal’s Robin Van Perise, according to Marca. The report says that new Real boss Jose Mourinho is keen to replace the outgoing Madrid legend Raul and sees Van Persie as the ideal replacement.

Madrid are ready to make their move despite Van Persie being under contract at the Emirates and has given no indication he wants to leave. But the report claims he may consider his future as he has yet to win a league title with Arsenal and may be tempted by the silverware he is ‘guarenteed’ to win if he moves to Spain.

Van Persie is currently in South Africa representing Holland who play Brazil this afternoon in the World Cup quarter finals, and Real are lining up a £35m bid when the tournament is over.

There you go then, Van Persie must be off if Marca say its true. So Real are going to spend £35m on a replacement for a player who warmed the bench all of last year? That makes sense i suppose. They already have Higauin, Kaka and Ronaldo to fill the front three positions, so why exactly would they want to spend that much on Van Persie?

Total rubbish if you ask me, but to be honest if Real did want to give us £35m for him….i would take it. That kinda money for a player who physically cant complete a full season, yes please! A fit Van Persie is world class and i wouldn’t sell him for all the tea in China, but that’s the problem…he doesn’t stay fit. So if this story has any foundation, and that’s a big if, i think Arsenal would and should consider it.

Would you take £35m for Van Persie?

      Yeah he can warm the sick bed till he retires. 35M would be a great bit of buisness and I have supported Arsenal all my life.

    Unimaginable that people like you can call yourself an Arsenal fan. Hoping that the club will sell one of our most important player and leader of the team, just because of money? You ought to be ashamed of yourself.

      Sorry, your right. What was i thinking. £35m for a player who is constantly injured. What a crazy thought.

      I should be more like you and think ‘RVP is a good player = we should keep him’

      World doesn’t work like that. We should always do what is best for AFC, and RVP isn’t worth £35m. So we should take it if offered….which it won’t be.

      Also, i didn’t say i ‘hoped’ it would happen, quite the opposite in fact. I said if offered that amount of money, Arsenal should take it.

      Yes,it is a very good business for arsenal if they can sell an injury prone player for such amount and replace him with another very good player

    No f***ing way should this be done, we need to hold on to our best players atleast 3 more years to be winners of several important trophys…

    35m sounds like a perfect deal to me.

    i wouldn’t take it. VP is passionnate anout arsenal, so i don’t think he’d want to go anyway. He said before that his heart chooses arsenal, so he wouldn’t leave. i think it’s good for the club to have players that truly love being at arsenal, as that means we will be able to keep hold of some of our good talent for a long time. I hope van persie does retire with arsenal, hailed as a hero to the club, just like bergkamp

    Anyone who thinks Van P should go are mad. He is one of the few to wear the shirt with pride and he is deadly on his day. Yes he has had injuries but he will come good and £35 million is not that much at the moment.

    I want to see him at Arsenal into his 30’s!

    I agree with the article £35.000.000 for a player makes a good deal for a player who’s very injury prone. Ok fine as long as our manager spent the money on one or two top class players and do it quickly. Can’t see that happening as it’s taken him yonks to sign an unknown centre back for a trifling £8.500.000 instead of paying the club the £10.000.000 that they wanted in the first place and get on with signing more players. Gawd! why oh why do’es he take so long? either he’s got the lolly or he aint!!!Fed up Gooner.!!!!

    Are u a t*** fab4, van persie is one of the most influential members of our squad and will be able to keep our team together, we need players like him to stay and players that dont want to stay they should go ie fabregas (dont want to see him go but if his hearts not in the club) in my opinion vp is our best player on his day and if fab does leave then should be considered for the captains arm band!

      Please read the article carefully. I don’t say i want RVP to go, but if we were offered £35m for him i would take it given his injury record. SIMPLE.

      Wenger would no doubt take it as well. Yes, as i say in the article, a fully fit RVP is amazing, but he doesn’t stay fit. He has shown that every year for 6 seasons. So why keep an injury prone player if we were offered £35m for him?

      Again, we wont as i believe this Marca piece is rubbish and Real wont make the bid. Which is fine by me.

    if Fabregas loved Arsenal as much as RVP does, then we wouldn’t have to worry about him joing Barca. RVP is probable in the top 3 of the world’s best forwards and you think we should sell him? what the hell do we, as Arsenal Fans want? what do we need the money for? its not like Wenger will use the money to buy another forward. i say we hold on to Robin and any other valuable of our squard.

    • Fab4

      July 2, 2010 at 2:11 pm

      Well obviously selling him would be based on the money being reinvested. Of course no Arsenal fan wants the best players to leave. My point is, £35m is amazing value for a player who doesnt stay fit. So if offered, take it and invest in the squad to make it better.

    i wouldnt sell robin, he brings alot more than just a forward player to arsenal, if he leaves, we’ve lost the basic backbone of our team, without him & fabregas, our two best players by a country mile. i doubt we’ll even finish top 4!

  15. take9

    July 2, 2010 at 2:33 pm

    I understand your point Fab4, but again its not like these teams need these players, Barcelona don’t need Fabregas, Madrid don’t need Van Persie, Barcelona certainly didn’t need Henry or Hleb, so to give up our best players to teams that don’t necessarily need them, just because we getting money out of it doesnt make any sense. we have enough money of our own what we need is trophies and these players will help us win them.

    • Fab4

      July 2, 2010 at 2:38 pm

      It’s really not about the money or whether these teams need our players or not….if Real are stupid enough to pay £35m for a player they dont need thats up to them.

      Its about whats best for AFC, and i think we should take £35m for RVP simply due to his injury record and only if Wenger reinvested the money to make the squad stronger.

    You must be a spuds supporter in disguise to write such tripe. How many arsenal games have you actually watched when RvP was playing. He makes the world’s difference to the team and I for one will rather sell Fabregas (never in a million years) sooner than RvP. Van Persie is technically the best striker in the world. He is much more than a striker. He has had bad luck with injuries but so has our whole team and something the club is looking at. You wouldn’t be able to replace him for any money. Please don’t write such carp again.

    • Fab4

      July 2, 2010 at 3:00 pm

      @Gary – seriously…how old are you? Someone has an opinion different to yours and all you can do is say they are a Spurs supporter?

      For the last time…..ready the article carefully. I NEVER say i want RVP to be sold. I say he is World Class (when fit). I say i think the Marca report is rubbish. I say it wont happen BUT if they did offer £35m i think we should take it due to his injury record, which is over 6 years and not just based on last season. RVP can not stay fit for a full season, simple. So take the £35m and reinvest to make the squad stronger. But its irrelevant as Real wont bid £35m for him.

      Its not rocket science, its just my opinion. But please come up with something more intelligent than calling me a spurs supporter!

    This won’t happen. Who in their right mind would pay £35m for someone who can’t stay off the treatment table? I’m an Arsenal fan and I love him but if Real were stuipid enough to offer us this sort of money I’d take it.

  19. GunnerBoy

    July 2, 2010 at 5:15 pm

    ppl really are dumbasses if they think selling RVP is a good thing!!! You bitch and moan that wenger doesnt get in trophies and then when a player is playing well, you go ahead and say that if they are giving 35 mil, take it. What kind of a supporter are you? I think you are either a kid or a pretender. Get some perspective and then post something like this.
    Fans like you are the reason the grove doesn’t feel like highbury.
    I really am shocked with this article.

    • Fab4

      July 2, 2010 at 8:20 pm

      Be shocked all you like, it’s my opinion and many others have the same view. RVP is world class and yes until now he has been loyal, but he can’t be relied upon to stay fit.

      So, if offered silly money, which £35m is, i think Arsenal should take it and reinvest. I’m the kind of supporter who doesn’t see the value in a player who sits on the treatment table most of the season.

      • Danny Boy

        July 2, 2010 at 10:32 pm

        GunnerBoy what are you talking about. Van Persie is class nobody is denying that but he hardly plays and with £35 million we could get one or two others who will play and score. An injured player is no use to any one. It’s not like defenders are scared of Messi when he’s on the treatment table is it. Get real!

    Why dont we sell the the entire squad(Tongue in cheek) and play the youngsters,we would still beat spurs !!

  21. Mrarsenal

    July 2, 2010 at 6:33 pm

    Very clever. Sell one of our most loyal and committed players and fill the squad with a bunch of others who are only using The Arsenal as stepping stone… Noice!

  22. visionary

    July 2, 2010 at 7:20 pm

    Dont take it.. wenger will just sit on it as usual… or reinvest it on more unproven youngsters… this guy takes forever to make deals.. and never chooses proven talents… He seems to like taking chances on finding unknown talent ie. getting a deal… ie. gettin players on the cheap. He has done a decent job.. but this will never win us some silverware…

    we need experienced leaders to win silverware.. and right now, Robin is our best hope for that on our squad…

    if u knew anything about whats good for arsenal, u would realize this by now and realize that taking the 35 will only put off us getting silverware another 3 seasons… better to just take our chances with Robins health..

    sell RVP, Fab and expect trophies ??? OK, on which position of the Arsenal’s first team there is a proven talent then?? Song?? yeah, he has proved he can score…..Oh yes, do you think verminator can create a fierce partnership with a FOB defender??? Dream on…. we still lack quality upfront besides other evident positions…..I say, since we wont be buying a top quality player after selling RVP we should not sell him…

    Sell him, I love RVP but he cant help our team by not playing most of the time. sell him and use the profit to get VDV from RM.

    RvP will get over his injury problems, He was very unlucky to do his ankle like that last year. Before that all was fine. I, like a previous commentor, feel that RvP can be as important as Bergkamp was. (and that’s not easy to say as Bergkamp is my favorite footballer of all time – what a legend, my hero).
