There was an article in the Spanish sports paper Marca yesterday that claimed that Robin Van Persie would be “excited” to play for the Spanish giants, but the Arsenal striker has categorically denied ever saying a word to the gossip rag.
RVP said on his Twitter account: “Contrary to reports in Spain I have NEVER spoken to Marca newspaper and never gave any interview. Enjoy your day.”
Arsene Wenger was a little more diplomatic but simply called them “creative” instead of some other possible expletives! He said: “Real Madrid and Barcelona have not been in contact.
“What do you think the answer would be? Barcelona knows that they have a difficult job with us always.
“They are very creative. They’ve created another story. They don’t care at all. They just create stories.”
It is interesting that the Marca story related to Real Madrid, but Wenger chose instead to talk about Barcelona. What does it all mean?
