Former Arsenal midfielder Cesc Fabregas has said that striker Robin van Persie should commit his future with Arsenal. Robin van Persie has been linked with a move to a number of clubs in the summer of after scoring more than 40 goals in all competitions for Arsenal.
Barcelona are rumoured to be one of the destinations for the Dutchman, but the former Arsenal midfielder has said that he should consider staying at the Emirates stadium. Cesc Fabregas himself moved away from Arsenal in the summer for £ 35 million. Robin van Persie is coming to the end of this current contract and has just one season left on his current deal.
There is every chance that he might be able to leave the club on a free transfer, which would be very bad business for Arsenal in the current economic climate. The club found themselves in a similar situation only a season ago when Samir Nasri decided to leave Arsenal with only one season left on his current deal. However, they were able to get only £ 25 million for a player who was worth around £ 40 million. Arsenal feel that the same could be repeated once again after Robin van Persie decided to postpone his future talks after the Euro 2012.
“As an Arsenal fan I would be happy if he stayed in London to help Arsenal win titles.” “I don’t think it will only be City who would like these kind of players. I don’t think you have so many good talents like Van Persie who have just one year left on his contract. There will be a lot of teams who will want a player like Van Persie,” Fabregas said. It has been an up-and-down season for the Spaniard since signing for Barcelona in the summer.
