While the Dutchman might yet switch to the Catalan club, he has subsequently explained that his trip has an innocent explanation, with Van Persie at the Nou Camp to pay a visit to compatriot Ibrahim Afellay.

Van Persie wrote in the Gunners’ official matchday programme: “The explanation is really very simple. My very good friend Ibrahim Afellay plays for Barcelona.

“After a bad long-term injury, he was finally back with the team – and during his absence I had been in contact with him a lot, but I hadn’t seen him.

“This was an opportunity for me to go and visit a close friend, show him my support and catch up.

“Unfortunately, this had to be at the hotel, because he was not permitted to leave it. I was wearing my Arsenal tracksuit and we sat down by the reception to have a chat and some food – everyone could see us and there was nothing to hide.

“I can’t imagine anyone conducting transfer negotiations in these circumstances!”

Van Persie also confirmed that he would be discussing his Arsenal future in the summer, saying: “Nothing has changed in the sense that my intention remains to discuss my future in the summer.”
