£25m bid could spell Van Persie exit at Arsenal

Published Add your comment

Real Madrid are reportedly considering a bid for Dutch international striker Robin Van Persie.

The Arsenal ace has recently won his place back in the starting line-up at the Emirates after recovering from injury, and has hit some impressive form for the Gunners in the Barclays Premier League.

Arsene Wenger has plenty of attacking options in his side, with Marouane Chanakh, Theo Walcott, Nicklas Bendtner, Carlos Vela and Andrey Arshavin all vying for attacking positions in the Arsenal xi.

Whilst Van Persie is the main man for the Gunners, a £25 million bid from Jose Mourinho might be to good to turn down for Arsenal as they continue to work towards paying off their stadium debts.


Reports in Spanish daily Marca claim that the Real Madrid boss has set his sights on the Dutchman after being priced out of a move for Carlos Tevez, and the aforementioned fee well do the trick for the Santiago Bernabeu outfit.

With a long-term injury to Gonzalo Higuain and the jury still out on Karim Benzema, a move for the Arsenal ace could prove pivotal in Los Blancos' La Liga challenge this season.

With a lack of silverware proving to be an issue for Arsenal in recent seasons, Wenger will have to work some magic and convince Van Persie that the Emirates is still the right place for him.
