Mancini: I do not think Van Persie will join Manchester City

captain, who is believed to approve of the Gunners' newly demonstrated
ambition in the market

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini has seemingly confessed defeat in his attempts
to lure Arsenal forward Robin van Persie to the Etihad Stadium.

The Netherlands international announced in July that he would not be signing a new
contract at the club, which had fuelled interest from Manchester United and Juventus, in
addition to City.

City,” the Italian told Sky24.
Van Persie won last season's Professional
Footballers' Assocation Player of the Year

to extend his contract, which expires next
summer, the forward voiced his desire to
move to a more ambitious club, with the
Gunners having last won a trophy in 2005.

improved after the club moved close to signing
Malaga's Spain international attacker Santi
Cazorla and launched a move for Real Madrid
playmaker Nuri Sahin , alongside the earlier
additions of forwards Olivier Giroud and Lukas
