The manager was frustrated by the constant questions about the Dutchman in his post-match press conference following the preseason defeat to Manchester City.Arsene Wenger reacted angrily to questions from journalists concerning Robin Van Persie's future at the club after the Gunners loss 2-0 to the Dutchman's potential new employer Manchester City.
Goal.com exclusively revealed last week that Van Persie would try to force a move to Manchester City by failing to come on the club's Asia tour but that the City would take its time before making any formal bid.
Sir Alex Ferguson admitted Manchester United's interest in the player, but the Dutchman is not currently a priority at Old Trafford.
The official line from Gunners officials is that Van Persie is at the club's Colney training base as he looks to build up his fitness but after he declared that he would not be signing a new deal, his future at the Emirates looks bleak.
When journalists quizzed Wenger on the subject though, the Frenchman was in no mood to discuss his striker's future and instead concentrated on his side's performance in the wet conditions of China's Bird's Nest stadium.
“The Van Persie case doesn’t cross my mind. We have had no offers," he said. “He is close to fitness, of course, but we have not had any contact (from City or United) about him at all."
When it was posed to Wenger that various sources had reported the bids from City, United and Italian giant Juventus, though, he seemed to be even more riled by the interrogation that he faced.
“We have talked about Van Persie. We have just played a football game tonight, there are four English people here and there have been four questions about Van Persie," he added.
