Man City boss Mancini admits he'd like to buy Van Persie

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini admits he's keen on Arsenal striker Robin van Persie. City have made enquiries for the £20million-rated Van Persie, who is out of contract next summer.

Roberto Mancini again admitted that he is a big fan but was cagey when asked about a bid.

The City boss said: "I think it is like this. If Wenger said this, I think it is true.

"Van Persie is one of the best strikers in the world, it is difficult to buy him.

"Have we made an offer? I don't think so."
