Settled Van Persie Hints At Arsenal Stay After Moving To New House

Robin Van Persie

Morning Gooners. Interesting reports this morning on the future of Robin van Persie, as the Telegraph are reporting that he has dropped his biggest hint yet that he will remain at the club after rejecting a possible move to Juventus.

The report claims that should the Italian champions make a formal move this summer, the Gunners hitman will turn down the opportunity as he doesn’t see Juventus as a significant step up from Arsenal.

VOdds

The Telegraph go on to claim that RVP and his family are very settled in London after recently moving to a new house, and the player has told close friends that he would only leave the Emirates if one of Europe’s elite clubs came calling.

What are “Europe’s elite clubs”? If you ask me; Barcelona, Real Madrid and Manchester United. I can’t see Wenger selling to Fergie, so unless Real or Barca come in, RVP is likely to remain at Arsenal.

There are doubts over whether Barcelona will have the finances, with a centre back thought to be their priority after the serious injury to Carles Puyol, while Mourinho has claimed he want’s to keep Gonzalo Higuain leaving little room for another striker at the club.

Some will say Man City are still in the running, but i really can’t see Van P tainting his legendary Arsenal status by selling out and joining Nasri at City. Plus, I don’t think Arsenal will sell to another Premier League club anyway, they would sooner see him run down the final year of his contract. Wenger has hinted as much already.

I must say i was never worried about Van Persie moving to Juventus, I just couldn’t see it happening, but the thing that makes me most confident he’ll stay is that fact he and his family are settled in London. Van Persie has said several times he loves London and loves his kids growing up in London. And after moving to a new house recently, does that sound like a man planning to move elsewhere?

So the signs are becoming stronger and stronger that the Dutchman will be at Arsenal next season. Of course, securing third place on Sunday will help things…A LOT!

    Nonsense. He lives in a small block of flats (above me) where he has lived for over a year.

        I’ll tell you so what:

        It means that he has not bought a new house, so that can not be relied on as a reason to believe he will not move.

        No need for you foul-mouthed behaviour or stupidity. The rest of your comment is moronic.

    All the players need to go the extra mile to win our last game….this will encourage RVP to stay with the club and not join Nasri and Clichy.

    Come on boys give us victory on Sunday!

    He can go to UTD for free the year after.

    I doubt he will. I have to say I am more concerned with this weekend. I have a really bad feeling Chelsea will knock us out of Europe.

    Come on the gunners

    So funny- Elite clubs are Barca, Madrid, and United! The 3rd elite club kicked out of Carling in the first round at home to a championship side, kicked out of first round of CL’s easiest group, kicked out of the FA cup early on, and most likely winning nothing! Some elite club!

    Come on Man Utd isn’t currently one of Europe’s Elite clubs, there’s only two at the moment Barca and Real which are almost equal to each other. Man Utd aint almost equal to either, Fergie said it himself after the defeat to Barca last year.
