Arsenal should not buy Van Persie back, say Goal Singapore readers

The Dutch striker caused a stir when he moved to rivals Manchester United but recent reports have suggested he might sensationally return to the Gunners as the Red Devils toil
It won't happen, will it? Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has been linked with a sensational return to Arsenal in recent times, as his current side labour this season.

The Dutch striker and former Gunners captain moved to Old Trafford in the summer of 2012 controversially for £24 million and made an instant impact. Netting 30 goals in his debut campaign, he led the Red Devils to their 20th league title in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season at the club.

But under David Moyes this season, the club have been eliminated from the FA Cup and Capital One Cup, while they endure a terrible Premier League campaign that sees them in seventh position currently.

It was suggested that the 30-year-old was considering his United future back in December last year, after a run of niggling injuries that led him to doubt Moyes's training and tactical methods.

He was subsquently linked with a move back to the Emirates, with manager Arsene Wenger refusing to rule out a return for his former protege.

However, the majority of Goal Singapore readers believe it will not be a smart move, with 60.3% indicating that Arsenal should not buy Van Persie back.

This could be because he would not represent value for money at his current age, or perhaps it is simply due to the fact that Van Persie has burned all his bridges with the Gunners supporters and there is no way back.

Arsenal take on Bayern Munich in their Champions League Round of 16 tie on Thursday morning, Singapore time. United will face Crystal Palace this Sunday morning in the league.
