It seems that the Robin Van Persie contract saga is set to run until the end of the current campaign. While many clubs will attempt to test Arsene Wenger and Arsenal’s resolve by offering to buy Robin Van Persie in the January transfer window, the club are unlikely to sell their best player, as they attempt to finish in the top four and keep their impressive Champions League run alive.
However, it seems that Robin Van Persie could be set to issue Arsenal with an ultimatum, “finish in the top four this season, or I am going on a free”. If Arsenal do fail to finish in the top four this season, there is still hope that they could hang on to their star striker, by winning the Champions League. That does seem a far stretch and highly unlikely, so this could be the last season that we see Robin Van Persie in an Arsenal shirt.
Robin Van Persie has been instrumental for Arsenal, as they aim to turn their terrible start to the season around. Robin has managed to score an impressive 17 goals in 19 appearances for Arsenal this season and an incredible 35 goals in his last 38 games for the Gunners. This has lead to many calling Arsenal a one man team, so keep Robin Van Persie at Arsenal is a must for the club.
