Wenger demands Arsenal make quick Van Persie sale

Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger doesn't want the Robin van Persie saga to drag on. The Daily Mail says Wenger has told Arsenal officials he wants a quick resolution to the Van Persie saga - even if it means he has to sell his talismanic striker.

The Arsenal manager is keen to hold face-to-face talks with Van Persie in the next few days to try to persuade him to sign a new contract.

But if he fails to do so, Wenger wants to sanction a quick sale of the 28-year-old forward.

The Frenchman would rather have the funds - and time - to reinvest than a repeat of last year, when the sales of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri near the end of the transfer window disrupted preparations for the new season.
