The Frenchman remains coy on the rumours linking the Dutchman with a north London comeback.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has spoken out for the first time about the possibility of Manchester United striker Robin van Persie making a return to north London.
The Dutchman has been recently linked with a sensational re-signing by the Gunners and it’s a subject that Wenger is remaining tight-lipped on.
“I don’t think it’s the best time to talk about that,” the Frenchman was quoted by Goal when asked about the prospect of van Persie rejoining the north London club.
The 30-year-old enjoyed a brilliant first season at Old Trafford following a £24m transfer from the Emirates Stadium, being greatly credited with the Red Devils regaining the Premier League title in 2012/13 and also winning the Golden Boot award with 30 league goals.
Yet this term van Persie has struggled with injury and has only played 14 times in the English top tier – although has still found the net on 10 occasions – and is not happy with David Moyes’ new training regime.
The Netherlands international thinks that the Scot has archaic methods and that has aggravated the forward’s injuries.
Van Persie has become disillusioned at United since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson as manager in fact, as the 72-year-old’s impending retirement was not made clear to the attacker when he joined the club.
With the Red Devils also looking like missing out on Champions League football next campaign, a reunion with Wenger is not beyond the realms of possibility.
