On Wednesday evening Robin Van Persie confirmed the fears of Arsenal fans across the world by stating that he wouldn’t be signing another contract with the club.
In an emphatic statement Van Persie stated a disagreement over the way in which the club moves forward. Essentially, as he nears his 30th birthday, the Dutchman wants to fill his trophy cabinet and he doesn’t feel he can do that at the Emirates.
Where he goes next is the big question. Mega-bucks Man City are the favourites to land his signature at 4/11 with neighbours United 11/2 to nab the striker. It is 9/2 that RVP heads to Italy to join Juventus who are rumoured to have already had a bid turned down.
Van Persie won’t be donning the Arsenal jersey next season but as a treat for Gunners fans we’ve put together our favourite five RVP goals.
