Robin van Persie confirms he wont sign deal with Arsenal

July 4, 2012 - London

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has confirmed that he would not sign a new contract with his current club. Robin has confirmed that he met with Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger and Chief Executive Ivan Gazidis before arriving to the decision. "I've thought long and hard about it, but I have decided not to extend my contract," he wrote on his website.

The decision to leave Arsenal stems from the disagreement on the way the club should move forward. Arsenal reacted to van Persie's decision by issuing a statement, which read: We have to respect Robin's decision not to renew his contract. Robin has one year to run on his current contract and we are confident that he will fulfill his commitments to the Club. We are planning with ambition and confidence for next season with Arsenal's best interests in mind."

Van Persie joined Arsenal eight years ago for 2.75 million pounds.
