Manchester City’s in command manager Roberto Mancini has hinted that the Citizens’ move for the Arsenal captain Robin Van Persie might go through this summer, after stating that a move from Napoli to Manchester by for Cavani would be impossible.
Mancini seems to think that bringing Cavani would be impossible for the Citizens, but that they have a good chance of landing Robin Van Persie due to his current contract. Robin is still under contract with the Gunners until the end of next season, and Mancini think there might be a chance of landing him if he won’t extend his contract.
“Van Persie is world class,” said Mancini. “Cavani has ¬everything. When he was playing for Palermo, I wanted to take him to Inter.
“To sign Cavani at his present valuation is impossible. For Van Persie, it is a bit different.
“Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri were a year before the end of their contracts and for Arsene Wenger it was difficult to keep them.”
Robin’s talks with Arsenal’s board have not concluded in an extension so far despite the fact that Wenger offered him the biggest salary in the squad by far. According to the Dutchman, he doesn’t wish to be better paid, but to have a chance at winning trophies, and after seeing Nasri and Clichy do that at City it’s going to be hard for him to decide.
