Van Persie ‘would prefer Juve’

After confirming that he will not sign a new deal with Arsenal, Robin Van Persie is apparently favouring a move to Juventus, should he be sold this summer.

The Dutchman, who was the Gunners’ leading scorer last term, announced last night that he would not be renewing his contract with the club that expires in June 2013.

His club initially stated that they expect him to remain with them into next season, but reports are linking the player with a transfer this window, so that Arsenal can receive a transfer fee for him.

It is thought to be a fight between Manchester City and Juventus for the 28-year-old, but Calcionews24.com believe that out of the two, the player prefers the change of scene that the Turin outfit can offer, as well as the stronger guarantee of first team football.

It is also alleged that Beppe Marotta is reportedly prepared to offer the striker a contract in the region of €8m a season.
