Transfer Tracker: Robin Van Persie, Lucas Moura, Mathieu Debuchy
Robin van Persie wants his future figured out, Sao Paulo want loads of cash for Lucas Moura, and Mathieu Debuchy just wants out.
Today's B/R Transfer Tracker is light on actual deals but heavy on speculation, which is just the way some of you like it.
The RvP saga slogs on, but it might be over before you know it. The same could be said for Manchester United's reported pursuit of Moura, if only for other reasons.
All the details await inside.
RvP Wants Swift Resolution

Arsenal striker Robin van Persie wants resolution to his playing future "as soon as possible," according to a club spokesman quoted by The Sun.
Van Persie, 28, announced earlier this month that he would not sign a new deal with Arsenal. He has a year left on his current contract, and Manchester City and Juventus are thought to be interested in signing him.
The Sun reports that RvP has been left out of Arsenal's new online catalog. It reports that van Persie wants to decide his future before the team leaves Saturday for its Asian tour.
Meanwhile, Arsenal have reportedly made a £9 million bid for Corinthians midfielder Paulinho (Daily Mail).
