Manchester City clear obstructions to finalize Robin van Persie’s contract
Manchester City are eager to clear all obstructions that are keeping them from signing in Robin van Persie from Arsenal. The first piece in the jigsaw puzzle is to get rid of Emmanuel Adebayor.
Reportedly, Manchester City has agreed to sell off Emmanuel Adebayor at a cut-price to Tottenham Hotspur. Manchester City will be gaining £5 million from this trade, which could prove to be handy in fueling the large salary Robin van Persie has been promised at the Eastlands.
By getting rid of Emmanuel Adebayor, Manchester City will be cutting down on weekly wages worth £170,000. Therefore, the £250,000 per week salary Manchester City were offering to Robin van Persie could turn into reality.
Robin van Persie is ready to switch to any club which is serious about contending for titles. Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini took the Eastlands to their first English Premier League title in 44 years last season and before that he ended their 35-year long wait for silverware.
Manchester City are serious contenders for the English Premier League title next season and will prove to be strong opponents to defeat in Champions League. Robin van Persie’s addition to the Manchester City squad will give a huge boost to Eastlands’ chances of success.
Robin van Persie has already refused to sign a contract extension with Arsenal, which means he will become a free agent during the transfer window. Signing in the talented Netherlands international would be any club’s dream.
Manchester City might have problems featuring their all of their strikers in case they acquire Robin van Persie. Manchester City already have players like Kun Aguero, Edin Dzeko and Carlos Tevez within their ranks.
Although, Manchester City have bid farewell to a number of useless players from their squad they will have to do more. Reportedly, Manchester City is planning to place Carlos Tevez in the football market.
Edin Dzeko was put up for sale in the early half of the season, but seems like Roberto Mancini has decided against selling him now. By the looks of it, it’s just a matter of time before Robin van Persie joins his former Arsenal teammates Gael Clichy and Samir Nasri at Manchester City.
