RVP in Arsenal U-Turn?
In desperate and concerning news, the media is today reporting that in addition to interest from West Ham and Crystal Palace, Robin Van Persie has also attracted interest from former side Arsenal.
The Mirror is today reporting that Arsenal’s interest has sparked at the news that former Gunner Robin Van Persie, could be available for transfer this summer, at a ridiculously low price. Turkish side Fenerbache are supposedly offering the Dutchman the chance to leave in a deal that would not cost more than a few million and it has supposedly alerted Arsenal. With any luck however we can hope that this is just another ridiculous rumour, especially after yesterday’s signing of Takuma Asano.
Van Persie may have worked wonders for Arsenal once upon a time, but his last two seasons of top quality does not mean that his injuries, the manner of which he left and everything else, is all forgotten. Van Persie spent most of his Arsenal career on and off the treatment table and a lucky two years without many injury concerns, saw him rise to the level of performance that was expected from his career. However just when the going got good for Van Persie he traded Arsenal in for a move to Manchester United, which looking back at it, was good for his professional career, but did not go down well with Arsenal fans.
Due to the nature of his exit, I can’t see Arsenal fans being at all favourable of RVP returning to the club, and I don’t think Wenger and co would especially want him here either. Therefore I think it’s safe to put this rumour past us, because even if RVP did want to return, surely the Dutchman isn’t good enough these days anyway. RVP joins the likes of Nasri and Adebayor who wouldn’t be welcomed back to the club even if they wanted to rejoin.
Anyway we have Lord Bendtner training with us already!
