Former Manchester United star Robin van Persie refuses to rule out move to Barcelona


Robin van Persie has refused to rule out speculation linking him with a move to the La Liga champions Barcelona in January.

Speaking to the Dutch newspaper  De Telegraaf the 32-year-old said that anything is possible in football.

“Nobody know what can happen in the future in Football. I have learnt not to make plans,” Van Persie stated (via Radyospor) when asked about reports linking him with Barcelona.

Mundo Deportivo states that Barcelona are interested in the Fenerbahçe striker following rumours that Van Persie has fallen out with head coach Vitor Pereira.

Van Persie did however, start and scored the winning goal in the 1-0 victory over Kayserispor in the Turkish Super League on the weekend.

The experienced striker only joined the Yellow Canaries over the summer. Van Persie left Manchester United to sign for Fenerbahçe on a three-year deal and already has five goals to his name this season.

Barcelona will also scout Riechedy Bazoer, Davy Klaassen, Jairo Riedewald, Anwar El Ghazi and Arkadiusz Milik.
