Van Persie turned down £300k a week from Manchester City to join United

That is what respected Arsenal blogger @10akhil is claiming to have been told by Arsene Wenger himself at today’s Arsenal AGM meeting.

Obviously, Wenger will never go on record saying such a thing but if we are to believe the claims are true, what a man van Persie is. Piers Morgan might have to come up with a less intuitive nickname than Robin van Pursestrings now.

One thing is obvious – his move to Manchester United was never about money. Even if City didn’t offer him £300k a week, they would have been offering more than United could have – yet he still chose the red side of Manchester.

Ohhh Robin van Persie.
