At this point, I honestly don't see how Robin van Persie will go to Manchester City.
For some odd reason, Manchester City have chosen to use the transfer of RVP to show that they will take a stand on their extravagant spending.
On top of that, it's obvious that Van Persie has a connection towards Arsenal, so he wouldn't allow himself to play for another English club unless he wanted to be viewed negatively by the Arsenal fans.
Wenger may be playing mind games with Van Persie by limiting the dutchman's options, saying that Serie A is an inferior league. However, Juventus does seem like an extremely viable option for the Dutchman. The Old Lady have had problems up front, with their top striker Matri scoring only 10 goals last season, as well as their participation in the Champions League, RVP would fit right in at Turin.
Also, he would be on a team that would be fighting for the top spot in the league, something he hasn't been close to in quite some time (sorry Arsenal fans).
With the signings of Podolski and Giroud, Wenger isn't showing much confidence in RVP's future at Arsenal as well, so the Dutchman's future really is up in the air at the moment.
