Arsenal are working on a shock deal to re-sign Robin van Persie from Manchester United, according to the Metro.
Van Persie only swapped Arsenal for the Red Devils outfit 18 months ago but has reportedly grown tired of life under David Moyes, telling friends and family that he will consider leaving Old Trafford in the summer.
Although leaving a bitter taste in the mouth in north London, Arsene Wenger seems ready to forgive the Dutchman and is already working on a deal to bring his former captain back to the Emirates.
It has already been claimed that Wenger met with his agent Darren Dein to assess the possibility of an Arsenal return and he has now taken that interest to the board, asking them to work out the financial details of a potential bid.
Van Persie has had a hard time at Manchester United lately and had to apologise to teammates after he openly criticised them in an interview on Tuesday night.
The striker claimed his teammates were operating in his areas of the pitch, undermining his ability to perform. However, upon reflection Van Persie thought better of his comments and apologised to teammates on Thursday morning.
