Manchester City are preparing a £30 million January bid for Arsenal captainRobin van Persie, according to the Mail on Sunday.
Reports suggest that City will table a massive January offer, believed to be around £30 million, for the Arsenal forward if contract talks between the Dutchman and the north London club do not make any significant progress before the transfer window re-opens.
Sources close to Van Persie claim that the striker has become deeply disillusioned over the summer departures of Cesc Fabregas, Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri and has in the past called for Arsene Wenger to bring in top talent, which many, including RVP, feel the Frenchman has not done.
Van Persie, who yesterday managed to notch up 100 goals for Arsenal after bagging two in the Gunners 3-0 win over Bolton, may choose to follow his former team-mates out of the Emirates this winter, which will undoubtedly have the Arsenal faithful and Wenger extremely worried.
RVP’s current contract expires in 2013, meaning Arsenal may be forced to sell their prized asset next summer if they want to see any financial return.
Let’s hope he pens down a new contract ASAP!!!
