According to, an agent claims that Juventus has already sealed a deal to sign Arsenal's Robin van Persie.

Fabio Parisi, who represents Tayo Taiwo and has no connection to the deal, claims the contract is already finished.

"I think Juventus have had a signed contract with Van Persie for some time locked away in a notary's desk," Parisi is quoted as saying in the Italian media. "It is just my opinion but I think there is an eight out of ten chance the Dutchman will join the Bianconeri. Juventus want to win and he is considered the ideal addition to achieve that."

Manchester City and United were also involved in the chase for the Ducthman, who shocked everyone last month by announcing he no longer wanted to play at Arsenal.

The English club reportedly prefers that van Persie go abroad if it indeed has to sell him.
