Man City line-up van Persie to replace Tevez

According to The Independent, Manchester City are looking to make Arsenal striker Robin van Persie their replacement for Carlos Tevez. The Argentine’s reported problems with the club and manager Roberto Mancini are leading towards an inevitable transfer, whether it is to be in January or in the summer.

Either way it is looking unlikely that he will figure in a great capacity for City again so potential replacements are already being drawn up, and Van Persie fits the bill for the club’s Abu Dhabi owners. However Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger is unlikely to be willing to let his star player go following the loss of key players over the last month or so.

Also, having seen the likes of Kolo Toure, Samir Nasri and Gael Clichy move to Eastlands from The Emirates you can only imagine the Frenchman is getting weary of City’s persistent purchasing of his assets, and will want to put a stop to it.
