RVP will stay put, says Wenger
Arsene Wenger has reaffirmed that Robin van Persie will stay at Arsenal and sees no reason why his captain would desire a move to Juventus.
Van Persie has just 12 months left on his contract and Wenger had initially been planning to resolve his talisman's future before Euro 2012.
However, negotiations stalled on a new deal and the prolific striker headed off to the tournament in Poland and Ukraine with a cloud of speculation hanging over his head.
The 28-year-old's father, Bob van Persie, recently insisted it would be impossible for his son to join Manchester City after he was repeatedly linked with the Premier League champions.
There has also been the reported interest from La Liga giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.
However, Juve appear to be the club with the strongest interest in the Netherlands international, and Wenger does not envisage his star performer leaving the Gunners.
"He will stay at Arsenal," Wenger told the Italian newspaper La Repubblica.
"There is no reason why a top player, a big champion would want a move to Serie A - in terms of the prestige of the league, the level of play or financial considerations.
"If he moves there, I will buy you a caramello."
