RVP : It's not about the money
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."
