Gunners want more for Van Persie
Saturday 21 July 2012
Arsenal have dismissed Manchester United's bid for Robin van Persie, with offers from Manchester City and Juventus also short of their valuation.
It is understood Arsenal are reluctant to enter formal negotiations until a bid exceeds £20m and they are hopeful of holding out for £25-30m. Van Persie, 28, will not be part of the Gunners squad that leaves on Saturday for a pre-season tour to Asia.
