Arsenal Transfer Rumours: Why Robin van Persie Cannot Pass Up Man City's Offer

Soven BerySenior Analyst IMay 15, 2012

Robin van Persie is about to encounter a great sum of money and it will be too good for the Gunner to pass up. 

Manchester City is offering Van Persie an incredible £25 million to join their squad, and that is way too much for the other clubs to match. 

The captain will discuss his future and crunch numbers on Wednesday, so now all we can do is speculate. 

It is a known fact that Van Persie loves Arsenal and would love to stay with the franchise, but the money is too much for him to pass up. 

The Dutch striker would get paid £250,000 a week at Manchester City compared to the £130,000 weekly salary that Arsenal is reportedly offering him.

Also, after a season that showcased many low points, Arsenal may not be the paradise it once was for Van Persie. The 28-year-old would have a better chance to win with the Blues. 

Manchester City are fresh off a crazy Premier League victory and the newly crowned EPL champions. 

They will now try and emulate the insane spending habits of Barcelona and Real Madrid in order to try and win the Champions League. 

This will start by nabbing Robin van Persie. 

The offer is on the table and he cannot pass up this marvelous bid by Manchester City.
