JUVENTUS’ bid for Robin Van Persie may be the only one left on the table for Arsenal’s star striker after Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admitted doubts over his transfer to City.

The Italian club had previously admitted that the price for the Arsenal front man was too high but with the comments from Roberto Mancini admitting defeat over the striker – the Italian club has been inspired once more.

According to various sources, Roberto Mancini said: “Van Persie? No, I don’t think he will come here.”

The comments mean Van Persie’s hopes of joining the Barclays Premier League champions now look remote with Mancini admitting he does not expect the player in his ranks next season.

Van Persie had had his hopes set on a move to Manchester City but the Italian club are keen for a move.

Juventus director-general Beppe Morotta hinted that Van Persie would be a star signing for the Italian club, but was concerned over the cost.

He said: “It’s necessary to always have dreams and ambitions, but at the same time you also have to contend with the reality of everyday facts.”

The club have already offered £20million for the player and offered Van Persie a £190,000 a week salary after tax.
