Arsene Wenger has accused the Spanish media of trying to unsettle Arsenal captain Robin van Persie.

Just like Cesc Fabregas before him, Van Persie - who has yet to commit to a new, long-term deal - has been heavily linked with a move to Spain. An article in Friday's Marca newspaper quoted the 28-year-old as claiming it would be "an honour" to be linked with Real Madrid, and he would be "excited at the prospect of playing there".

"Frankly, Marca is as creative as some English newspapers. That means you cannot believe every word that is said in Marca," the Arsenal manager said.
