Robin van Persie hesitant on Arsenal future

Arsenal striker and Dutch international, Robin van Persie, says that he is unsure of what lies ahead of him in his Arsenal career, but still regards the Premier League as the best competition in the world.

The future of the forward was thrown into question after he revealed that he was stalling on a contract extension last month following their disappointing start to the season.

Van Persie currently has a contract that is set to expire in just over 18 months in the summer of 2013 and, being one of if not the team’s standout player so far this season, Arsene Wenger will be striving to sign him up on a new deal.

The Dutchman was upset with the summer departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri and was alleged to have claimed that he could have followed them out of the Emirates exit.

Speaking to The Times, van Persie noted: “I do not know (what I will do), I cannot predict the future, everybody makes his own history and only afterwards can you see how that went.”

The striker is now being linked with a move to big spending Manchester City, and he has left the question mark over the move, stating: “I do not know. For one thing, as an indication, when I came to Arsenal we immediately beat City.”
