Arsene Wenger, the Arsenal manager dreams of getting Robin Van Persie next summer. Especially if Manchester United set to be welcomed by the Gunners on Wednesday, become unable to earn a spot in the Champions League.
Asked about the issue during a pre-game press conference against the Red Devils, the French coach did not want to hold forth: “Look, I do not think it’s a great story today,” he said before adding : “I think it is better not to talk about this at the moment. But it is true, Robin Van Persie is a great player. We all know.”
7ths in the standings with 41 points, it is unlikely that Manchester United pull their socks for a spot among the Big Four. This perhaps would suit Wenger and Arsenal.
