Manchester City and Manchester United have both made offers for Arsenal contract rebel Robin van Persie. The Sun says City offered Arsenal around £15million yesterday and United boss Alex Ferguson also confirmed a bid, understood to be about £13m.

The Gunners want at least £20m for the striker.

Juventus are also in the running and have said they will pay £8m for the Arsenal skipper.

The Londoners are resigned to losing last season's Premier League top-scorer but told him yesterday in talks they will hold out for the full amount.
