Robin Van Persie Linked With A Surprising Transfer

Former Manchester United and Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has been linked with a surprising transfer.

The Dutchman, currently playing for Fenerbahce in Turkey, has scored seven goals in 18 appearances in all competitions this season but reports have indicated that he could potentially be on the move.

According to Tutto Mercato Web, Brazilian side Sao Paulo, managed by Rogerio Ceni - aka the Brazilian goalkeeper who was an absolute goal machine - are extremely interested in the 33-year old and are said to have held talks with van Persie and his representatives today.

Sao Paulo are one of the giants of Brazilian football but finished the recent Serie A campaign in 10th place, 28 points behind winners Palmeiras.


And they have identified Van Persie as someone who can still make a real difference for them and provide that extra bit of experience and quality.

Club president Carlos Augusto has already talked openly about wanting to bring in RVP.

He said:


"We want to add someone to the squad around the world, and Robin van Persie has drawn attention here at the World Cup and we want to add him to our team if the conditions are met."

Van Persie isn't the only former Premier League striker who has been linked with a move to Brazil, as it emerged a few days back that Didier Drogba had been offered an insane contract by Corinthians.

Do you think Van Persie still has what it takes to play at the very top level or is a Brazil switch about right for him at this stage in his career?

Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
