According to FIFA agent Fabio Parisi, Arsenal’s rebel striker Robin Van Persie has already put pen to paper with Juventus.
Parisi, who currently lives in Milan, believes that the contract between the wantaway Gunner captain and the Turin club has been signed some time back and has been kept under wraps by both the parties. He referred to the agreement being ‘locked away’ in a desk for reasons unknown.
The Dutchman has been in the wish list of the two Manchester clubs as well but according to Parisi, the Bianconeri may well have stolen a march over them to get the prized signature of last season’s top scorer.
‘I think Juventus have had a signed contract with Van Persie for some time locked away in a notary’s desk,’ he told Italian TV.
‘It is just my opinion, but I think there’s an eight out of ten chance the Dutchman will join the Bianconeri.’
Reigning Serie A champions Juventus are ready to splash the cash in the transfer market this summer in order to compete for the Champions League next season. They have been linked with the likes of Luis Suarez and Manchester City’s Edin Dzeko, but Parisi is confident that Van Persie is the right man for the club.
‘I don’t think Edin Dzeko is the right player for the Bianconeri.’
