Robin van Persie has informed Arsenal that no amount of money could keep him at the club if he is not convinced they can win trophies.
The Dutchman, who joined the Gunners from Feyenoord in 2004 and has one year left on his contract, is currently on international duty at Euro 2012.
And with Manchester City reportedly set to offer Van Persie a chance to join the Premier League champions, Arsenal are willing to make the 28-year-old the highest paid player in their history by agreeing a £130,000-a-week deal.
But an Arsenal source insists van Persie is not swayed by money and is purely focused on the chance to win trophies.
"Arsenal know it's not about the money," the source said.
"Even if they offered Van Persie what City can pay it would make no difference if he doesn't believe the club can challenge for trophies."
what do you think?
I bet everyone who reads this artical was humming Jessie j in their heads whilst they did so
He deserves to be at a better club. Arsenal will slip furthur and furthur down the table. He needs a team that are going to win things
Yeah just not city
I suppose if I was on his wage I wouldn't be too concerned about the money either!! In one week he gets paid what it takes 10 years or more for lots of people to earn!
