Heading to Real Madrid may put Robin Van Persie in a position where he plays out of position, or does not play at all, but he would also get a chance to receive passes from a few incredible wingers and midfielders.
Madrid often uses a formation similar to the one Arsenal employed, and Karim Benzema has occupied the same role as Van Perise did for the Gunners.
Benzema scored 21 goals last season and played extremely well. He is just 24 years old, while Van Persie is 28, and Van Persie would likely have to battle him for playing time.
However, Angel Di Maria, Mesut Ozil and Cristiano Ronaldo were the most often used players behind Madrid’s center striker, and they combined for an incredible 44 assists in La Liga games. Add in Xabi Alonso’s passing skills and that number jumps to 53 assists from the starting midfield players.
A move to La Liga may not be ideal for Van Persie, as he would have to fight with a younger, similarly talented player to get on the pitch. However, he would have an opportunity to play in front of a handful of the most talented playmakers in the world.
