The Daily Mail has today reported that Arsenal’s talismanic striker Robin Van Persie is set to leave to join Manchester City in a deal which will see Van Persie become the highest paid player in the league, earning a reported £210,000-a-week.

Arsenal fans need not worry just yet though as no deal has been reached between the two clubs and Arsene Wenger will be hoping his recent interest in Lukas Podolski may just tempt RVP to sign an extension to his current contract.

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini spoke about his admiration for Van Persie last week ‘Van Persie is one of the best strikers in Europe with Messi, Ronaldo – and Sergio and Mario’

Could RVP be following the likes of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri out of Arsenal in order to win trophies?
