Manchester City Transfers: Picking an XI to Include Robin Van Persie

Last week, news broke that Robin van Persie would not be signing a new contract at Arsenal and that he would be leaving the club.

He still has a year left on his contract, so nobody knows whether he'll leave this summer or next summer.

There's no doubt that there will be a lot of interest in him.

He's one of the best strikers in Europe and his form last season was crucial to Arsenal securing a third placed finish in the English Premier League.

It's well known that a goalscorer is the hardest thing in the world to find, but van Persie looks like he's ready for a new challenge and he wants to win trophies.

Clubs across Europe like Barcelona, Real Madrid and Juventus can offer him that, but there's one club in England that might just have the resources to persuade him to stay in the country.

That club is Manchester City.

They're one of the richest football clubs in the world and they seem to have an endless pot of money to spend on players.

This article is pure speculation, but I'm going to pick a Manchester City XI (including Robin van Persie) that I think would be capable of winning major trophies next season.

The formation I'm going to go for is a 4-2-3-1.

Let's take a look at what I think would be the best Manchester City XI, including Robin van Persie.
