According to Spanish newspaper Marca, Arsenal ace Robin van Persie has been quoted as saying “I like to know the interest of such an important club like Real Madrid. Of course I’m excited to play there.”
This shock claim has no doubt struck fear into the hearts of many Gunners fans who wouldn’t want to lose their top marksman, currently on 22 goals so far in this campaign, making him their top scorer.
However, Robin himself was quick to snub the papers’ claim, stating on twitter that “Contrary to reports in Spain I have NEVER spoken to Marca newspaper and never gave any interview. Enjoy your day.” Another Cesc Fabregas? Who knows.
