The transfer saga of Robin van Persie is indeed a long tale to tell.
The Arsenal striker has stalled talks on a new contract with the Gunners, leaving City ready to bid on his signature. Many, including myself, see van Persie staying with Arsenal for at least another season. He has already said he wants to win trophies and does not care so much about his salary.
This is good news considering Arsenal were only prepared to offer him £130,000 per week, while City offered £220,000 a week.
The Holland international has declared that only an "extraordinary" offer would convince him to leave the Emirates.
I predict that RVP will stay at Arsenal, despite the considerable amount of money he has been offered elsewhere.
That is what I call loyalty.
