Man City boss Mancini: Van Persie will settle quickly at Man Utd

Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini knows title rivals Manchester United will be lifted if they sign Arsenal striker Robin van Persie. Mancini doesn't believe it will take long for Van Persie to settle at United.

"If United buy Van Persie it is better for them," said Mancini.

"They need a player like Van Persie. He could play for any team because he is a top player."

If there is any club who got it right, it is Chelsea, who moved early for Eden Hazard.

"I am not surprised how much Chelsea have spent," said Mancini. "Probably they needed to buy new players because they lost Drogba, who was an important player for them."
