Arsenal's Van Persie: Man City cash won't tempt me

Arsenal ace Robin van Persie insists Manchester City's millions could never tempt him away.

He said: "I was really surprised when they came in for Robinho. I thought 'What's happening? Man City and £30m?'

"No they haven't put an offer in for me and they don't have to bother! I'm really curious if Manchester City have a plan because it won't work by only buying the most expensive players.

"It's about a team. If all the pieces don't click then the system will fail.

"In principle, Man City could have success but there has to be a philosophy with a whole staff who have a plan for the next four or five years."
