Van Persie refuses to sign new contract!
Emergency for Arsenal as their star player Robin van Persie has decided to refuse the contract offered to him by the Gunners. In a statement which appeared on his official website (and also on Arsenal's official website), the Dutch international has declared that he will not renew his current contract, which runs out next summer. The forward has stated that financial terms were not the issue, since these are not his priority at all. The player continued by saying that after several meetings conducted between him, Arsene Wenger and Mr. Gazidis, it has become clear to him that they disagree on how Arsenal FC can move forward and restore the club back to its glory days. Amongst the highest chasers for his signature are crowned champions Manchester City, who could lure him away due to their latest trophy additions, something which catches RVP's interest. Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus are also monitoring the situation.
