Once upon a time Van Persie was an Arsenal legend but the ‘little boy within’ screamed ‘move to Manchester United’. The once king of North London became the great traitor of the north but considering he has been transfer listed would Gooners give him a second chance?
The experienced striker joined Fenerbahce from Manchester United for £4 million but the Yellow Canaries will listen to offers over the summer.
“Van Persie, we’re waiting for buyers, if he wants to be sold,” Fenerbahce president Aziz Yildirim told reporters.
We took a look at how Arsenal fans reacted to the news of Van Persie getting transfer listed on social media.
The obvious question was regarding forgiveness.
Arsenal are in the market for a striker and Van Persie knows the club better than most.
There was actually quite a lot of support for the Dutch striker and to be fair he has proven himself at the highest level in the Premier League for years.
Naturally there are concerns regarding his age as he is 32 but he did prove at Fenerbahce that he does still have an eye for goal and found the back of the net 22 times.
Not all fans were as forgiving. The snake reference seemed to be a recurring theme among some circles.
Well that is one way of putting in!
