Arsenal striker Robin Van Persie has stated that he does not want to negotiate a new contract at the Emirates for the time being, leaving Arsene Wenger fearing he may lose another key player.
The Netherlands international’s current deal in North London takes him up to June 2013, but the French coach is keen to extend the attacker’s contract after seeing Gael Clichy, Samir Nasri and Cesc Fabregas depart in the summer.
Despite this, Van Persie has stated that he is happy with his current deal, and will not entertain extension talks at this time.
“I still have almost two years, so for the moment that’s fine. I’m happy with my contract. I can’t look into the future. I can’t see us talking now because we are so busy – we have games every three or four days,”
he told The Daily Mail.
“Maybe we will leave it until the end of the season. The main thing for me is the team and that we play well,”
Arsenal entertain Olympiakos in the Champions League on Wednesday, and will look to build on their weekend victory over Bolton.
