Juve Van Persie bid rejected

Juventus and the two Manchester giants have reportedly made bids of around £15m – €20m – for Arsenal’s Robin Van Persie.

The Dutchman is set to be sold by the London club this summer after opting against signing a renewal to his contract which expires in June 2013.

While it has been known for a while that Juventus, Manchester United and Manchester City were keen, it was unclear whether any offers had already been made.

According to the BBC on Friday, all three have offered around the same amount, but Arsenal are looking for a minimum of £25m which is roughly €32m.

Juventus have already declared this week that they are unwilling to spend the €30m which would be required to sign Stevan Jovetic from Fiorentina.

The 28-year-old Holland ace, should he move to Turin, would be looking for an annual salary of around €7.5m which would make him the highest paid player at the club.

Van Persie will not fly out as part of Arsenal’s pre-season tour of Asia.

Should Juventus sign Jovetic or Van Persie? Have your say...
