Manchester United star forward Robin Van Persie will not return to Arsenal

According to TalkSPORT on Mar. 2, 2014, Dutch football expert Marcel van der Krann claims that recent reports that Robin Van Persie is looking to leave Manchester United and return to Arsenal are complete rubbish:

"The links to Arsenal are laughable. He’s very loyal and Van Persie is not the kind of player who moves around. The only reason he left Arsenal was because he wanted to win trophies.

He didn’t think, at the time, that there was enough experience in the team to win trophies anytime soon at Arsenal.”

Speaking with TalkSport’s Hawksbee and Delaney on their weekly show, Krann feels that there is really no reason to believe that RVP would not be loyal to United or Moyes despite recent comments from the Dutch striker that have been opening frustrated:

“He was at Arsenal for eight years though and played most of his youth career at Feyenoord. He’s only had two clubs his whole career.

I don’t think he’ll go back to Arsenal or leave Manchester United after just one season, in 20 years, where they don’t win a trophy.”

In his professional belief, “In my opinion he is at Manchester United for the rest of his career,” Krann truly feels that the Red Devils No. 20 is not going anywhere soon.

With Wayne Rooney having just committed his future to the club with an outrageous, but good for him, deal worth £300,000-per-week the Englishman’s position as a future part of the club is also likely to see RVP stay.

The January arrival of Juan Mata from Chelsea is also not likely to hurt the matter either. Although it has been a frustrating campaign, there is promise in the club’s future and a summer that is busy with movement and some new defensive and midfield blood will likely see United fighting for top places in the Premier League next campaign.
