Arsenal’s star Robin Van Persie ha caught the attention of Champions League rivals AC Milan after the home leg, and when the Italians will come to town to face the Gunners next week Wenger will have to protect both the player and the goal if he wants to have a chance at going through to the next round.
Milan’s star defender found out about the club’s interest in the Dutch striker and offered his opinion on the subject saying that Robin is more than welcomed to join Milan at any time.
“He is a champion and all champions are welcome at AC Milan. He is a player who can bring many things to a team,” Silva said. “Defenses have a real problem in trying to stop him and it really is a pleasure to watch him play.”
It’s unlikely for Robin to join AC Milan with offers from Barcelona, Real Madrid, Manchester City and a host of other clubs, but one thing is for sure, if Wenger won’t make some kinds of efforts to keep him at the club and if the Frenchman can’t promise to win a trophy with the Gunners soon Robin is unlikely to extend his contract which runs for another year.
