Soccer Tickets Online at related • 0 views

According to the National newspaper, Arsene Wenger is at odds with the Arsenal board over how to handle Robin van Persie's transfer saga.

Wenger wants to win this season and he is hoping that the price of £30million for Van Persie will scare off Man City, Man United and Juventus.

"For me, Van Persie is one of the best strikers in the world, if not the best, and my desire is to keep him at the club," said Wenger after leaving his captain off Arsenal's tour of Asia yesterday.

The line being peddled is that it's a fitness thing but under the circumstances I don't know that anyone will really believe that, especially when further reports of bids from Man City, Man United and Juventus emerged.
