Arsenal left to sweat as RVP praises Juve but refuses to comment on his future

Robin van Persie has refused to comment on his future as speculation continues that the Dutchman will leave Arsenal this summer.
The striker is entering the final year of his contract at Emirates Stadium and has been strongly linked with a move to Manchester City and Juventus.

The Gunners had hoped to tie Van Persie to a new deal before he linked up the Holland team ahead of Euro 2012. However, talks stalled and the club captain arrives in Poland this week ahead of Friday's tournament kick-off.
In an interview with Italian newspaper Tuttosport, Van Persie was asked about the links with Serie A champions Juventus.
He said: 'Juventus are a great team. But I have agreed with Arsenal that I will not discuss my future.
'All I can say is that it is my intention to have a great Euro 2012 and win it. And then go on to win the Champions League.'

'I've never felt so strong and I just want to continue winning. At this point in time all I want to do is focus on the European Championship. There will then be time to address other matters.'
Last week, City boss Mancini added more fuel to the fire when he said: 'Van Persie is a top-class player. His situation is different than when we signed [Gael] Clichy and [Samir] Nasri.
'It was difficult for Arsene Wenger to keep them in London. We will sign a striker if one of our forwards leave.'
Van Persie, who was named PFA player of the year, won the golden boot and picked up the Football Writers' gong, has been in fine form for Holland in their warm-up fixtures, and scored twice more against Northern Ireland on Saturday.
