van Persie Salary & Net WorthHow much did Robin van Persie earn?
Robin van Persie has a net worth of...
50 Million Euros (56 Million Dollars)
Van the Man spent a major chunk of his time at a very good club, but at the worst of their time. Arsenal had lost their engine, and despite retaining Henry and acquiring the Dutch forward, they were never the same. He transferred to Manchester United and made an immediate impact before eventually returning to Feyenoord, where it all began. Although he was paid handsomely by his clubs, there weren't any massive sponsorship deals that he'd sign. He also didn't have any business interests either. He concentrated on the sport and is now exploring his options. We estimate his net worth to be in the region of 50 Million Euros.
Current JobWhat does van Persie currently do?
He tried his hand at punditry for a brief period. He's only 36 and has some more time before he decides what he wants to do permanently. (Image: imgur.com)
He has taken a mentor role with Feyenoord, where he closely works with Róbert Boženík. Guess he misses playing a lot and is experiencing an urge to get back to the field. (Image: imgur.com)
Premier League Title 2012/13
He had to wait 9 years for this moment from the time he arrived in England. It vindicated him in a way when he finally got to win the Premier League in his very first season with the Manchester-based club. He scored 30 goals for the club in all competitions and earned a fitting reward by lifting the league title. His stay in the north-west of England came to a bitter end after Sir Alex Ferguson retired at the end of that season. The club failed to rebuild, and sadly he moved away after spending two more seasons with them. (Image: imgur.com)
We didn't know what was going through his mind when he attempted this header. He was playing off the shoulder of Ramos and had made a perfect run, beating the offside trap. He received the ball, but instead of trying to control it, he just dived to connect with his head. It caught everyone off guard, including the ever-attentive Iker Casillas. This was a grudge match for the Dutch, and they made Spain pay, rather heavily. It'd be one of the most ingenious goals we'd ever see, and it's proof that this attacker was a deadly predator in the box. It was one of the best goals of the 2014 FIFA World Cup without a doubt.

Love Life - Single, Girlfriend or Wife?
Robin van Persie Wife - Bouchra
Why wouldn't he be smiling? He's married to a beautiful woman, after all. Bouchra is pretty content with her man as well. (Image: imgur.com)

We're in love with the salt and pepper look that he's got going on. Bouchra is demure looking in her black dress. (Image: imgur.com)
Family - Get to know them
van Persie Mother - José Ras
He has probably learned to let go and embrace change because of his mum. She's a free spirit. You know the artistic type. He grew up with his father after his parents divorced. He's making up for lost time now. (Image: imgur.com)
van Persie Grandfather - Wim
His granddad was 94 when he came to visit our forward play. He has been a keen supporter of the kid from his early days. That's pure love. (Image: imgur.com)
van Persie Car - What does he drive?
He's getting full marks for being original. The Nissan Figaro is an iconic vehicle and one that we love a lot. (Image: imgur.com)
He used to drive a Panamera whilst he was in Britain. This is the most absurd car Porsche has ever produced. (Image: imgur.com)
House - Where does he live?
Location: Goffs Oak, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
He was living in this house when he played for Arsenal. It looks depressing and could have been why he finally moved to Manchester. (Image: imgur.com)
