It was thought last week that Juventus had abandoned their hopes of signing Arsenal’s want-away Dutch international star, Robin Van Persie altogether. However, news this morning from the Daily Mail has confirmed the complete opposite.
According to his agent, Fabio Parisi the player has already signed a contract with Juventus:
I think Juventus have had a signed contract with Van Persie for some time locked away in a notary’s desk.
It is just my opinion, but I think there’s an eight out of 10 chance the Dutchman will join the Bianconeri.
The problem now will be getting anything finalized with Arsenal, as the longer the transfer saga plays out the more it looks like RVP could remain a Gunner until January. However, that would be running a massive risk that could see clubs just wait until he is a free agent next summer.
Manchester City and Manchester United are also still believed to be interested, but there seems to be no rebuttal from them over stopping a potential move of the player to Juventus.
