Manchester City must sell before considering buying Arsenal ace Robin van Persie.

The Daily Mail says with one year left on his contract at Arsenal, Van Persie has been offered a new deal at the Emirates.

City, though, have the power to offer the 28-year-old in excess of £200,000 a week as well as the chance to win the Barclays Premier League.

If City are to push a deal through they will need to offload one of their other high earners such as Emmanuel Adebayor or Carlos Tevez.
