Talks between the club and Robin van Persie apparently broke down yesterday with no agreement according to The Sun.
Of course what is written in The Sun should be taken with a pinch of salt, but it would be no surprise to see the talks break down, the whole feeling from van Persie in recent weeks has not been a positive one with regards to extending his contract.
Apparently we are offering him a lucrative new three-year deal worth £130,000 a week that is hoped will see off interest from Man City, but that is assuming money is going to be enough to persuade van Persie to stay at The Emirates.
Whether we like it or not Man City are more likely to win trophies over the next three seasons than what we are and having seen three former team mates collect Premiership winners medals one can only imagine what van Persie is thinking.
It is also unlikely that we will force van Persie to see out the remaining year of his contract despite what the press are claiming, I cannot see us turning our backs on quite a few millions to prove a point, but we will see.
