Lately the newspapers have been booming with all sorts of information linking Arsenal’s star Robin Van Persie with moves to many different places around Europe, largely speaking about the possibility of him joining Real Madrid or Barcelona.
According to the same publications the Dutchman was highly wanted at Real Madrid last summer but with Benzema and Higuain in the attack Mourinho just couldn’t fit Robin as well.
Barcelona’s officials just infirmed the interest in Robin saying:
“Nothing exists with RVP,” explained Bartomeu after Saturday’s 2-1 win over Real Sociedad.
“It’s rumours that appear in the papers. We’ve not contacted Arsenal, nor his agent.
“Our focus is now on the Liga and Copa del Rey.
“It’s necessary to be focused on the task at hand and not be distracted by the transfer market.”
Now, would you judge Robin if he’d leave? He still has a contract with the Gunners till the summer of 2012 and will probably be tempted to extend that given the tremendous time he currently has there, but if he wouldn’t would you judge the guy?
He’s now 28 and hasn’t won a trophy for a very long time now, so why judge the guy if he would accept to leave, especially having seen how Fabregas started winning trophies literally within the first few games after he joined Barcelona?
