Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has admitted that he is still in contact with Manchester United striker Robin van Persie.
His deflection to Old Trafford still wrangles with fans, but Wenger insists his former captain still holds the club close to his heart.
The Frenchman said: “He texts me sometimes, We keep in touch. He tells me he still watches Arsenal games.”
The Dutch international striker made 277 appearance and scored 132 goals for Arsenal before joining Manchester United in 2012.
