Arsenal fans have been told to prepare themselves for another summer of uncertainty after chief executive Ivan Gazidis has warned that Robin Van Persie’s contract issues are far from over. The Daily Mirror report that Arsene Wenger wanted to tie up the Dutch international’s contract before the European Championships but after weeks of negotiations Gazidis has claimed a solution is ‘weeks away’.
This comes just a day after the 30-year-old was quoted in The Sun praising Serie A side, Juventus. It is thought that the Italian champions are favourites to sign Van Persie and this latest development is sure to alert them. Reports last week suggested Manchester City were keen to make the PFA player of the year their fifth Arsenal signing in 3 years.
