Van Persie hoping for a quick decision about his future

Arsenal's Captain Robin Van Persie is seeking a quick solution to his 'club problem'. The talismanic striker recently returned to training with Arsenal, and just wants his future to be settled soon so that he can concentrate on playing, reports ESPN. This is the first time that Van Persie took the field after his declaration on his official site that he wouldn't be penning a new contract at the Emirates.

The Gunners find themselves in a familiar state of having to see their star player depart in the transfer window and would be hoping of a better resolution this time around than last summer; when Arsene Wenger did not have much time to think and ended up spending the money generated by the departures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri on a bunch of decent players, but none particularly inspiring.

A spokesman of Arsenal recently told the Sun that, "Robin returned to training on Monday as expected and made it clear he wants to sit down and resolve the matter of his future, either way, as soon as possible. No date has yet been agreed for that meeting."

Sun columnist Ian Wright, a former Gunner striker believes that RVP is destined to leave and the North London club shouldn't waste their time on the Dutch hitman. He wrote that, "I really hope Arsenal and Van Persie can resolve this situation and that he will end up staying, but I cannot see this happening."

There are murmurs though which are emmanating out of North London which suggest that Van Persie values his Arsenal legacy too much to accept an offer to join either Manchester United or City, and hence a move to Juventus looks the most likely. However, that would not be happy news for Manager Arsene Wenger, with the Old Lady of Turin unlikely to be able to financially match Arsenal's asking price for the player, something City are more than prepared to do.

The Arsenal boss will probably be forced to accept whatever best offer Juve can place on the table, and take heart from the fact that pending a Champions League calamity (as so often is the case in such situations), Arsenal will probably not need to face Van Persie this coming season.
