Van Persie set to reject Juventus
May 10, 2012
Arsenal skipper Robin Van Persie is set to snub Italian giants Juventus after the Bianconeri revealed that they were interested in securing his services this summer. Juventus, winners of Serie A in 2011/12, have made no secret of their admiration for the Dutch star but Van Persie is reportedly not too keen on a move to Italy.
The prolific Dutch centre forward doesn’t view Juventus as a major step up from Arsenal and the fact that his family are well settled in London is also a factor. Van Persie will reportedly quit Arsenal only if a major European superpower ( read Real Madrid or Barcelona) come calling.
Van Persie has a year left on his contract at Arsenal but officials are confident of getting him to pen a new deal soon.
