Just when we thought his story had ended, more rumours pop up.
Robin van Persie has been attracting interest from all over Europe, as well as Premier League rivals, with Manchester United eager to sign the 28-year-old Dutchman.
He says that we need to replace Van Persie with the money we make from his potential sale, but also admits that it will not be an easy task.
He recently told talkSPORT:
‘The most important thing for Arsenal Football Club, because no player is bigger than the club, is that whatever money they get for Van Persie, £20m or £25m, they have to reinvest it this time.
‘They’ve got Giroud and Podolski coming in but they definitely need another top class striker and with that £20m that’s what Wenger has got to try and do.
‘He has got to find that little gem that can step into Van Persie’s shoes but it is not going to be easy.’
I honestly find no point to his statement – it is just an obvious observation. Of course we need to spend some money on another world class striker if Van Persie is sold -that’s the whole point of selling someone on, to replace them with someone equally as good, if not better.
Though it must be said that Arsenal don’t usually do so and I get where Parlour is coming from.
