Is the Robin van Persie Saga Decided, Finally?
It appears the Robin van Persie, the disgruntled Arsenal striker, is set to leave the club’s training in Germany to fly back to England to hold talks with Manchester United according to Sky Sports.
Arsene Wenger has certainly done his job in securing the team’s future with the signings of Podolski and Giroud in the Spring, and most recently the largely publicized aggressive move for Spanish International, Santi Cazorla. RvP was very adamant about his disagreement with the direction the club was taking in regards to ending its trophy drought. Perhaps now he feels a little silly as the club has done its part and more with three very legitimate signings.
Not to take anything away from Robin’s time at Arsenal. Far be it from me to criticize a guy who has a scoring record that is near the tops of the world, only a short pace from Messi and Ronaldo. But, as a Gooner myself, I am just happy the drama seems to be finding a resolution.
