Man City, Juventus battle for RVP
London, Jul 7: Italy Serie A champions Juventus are ready to break the wage records in order to sign Arsenal striker Robin van Persie.

The Italian champions will battle it out with several clubs in the Premier League namely Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United to sign the Gunners star, who recently revealed that he will not be signing a new contract and is willing to continue his career away from North London.

Manchester City are favourites to land the 28-year old Dutchman , who was also named PFA footballer of the year last season for his performances scoring 37 goals in all competitions.

But sources close to the Serie A champions have suggested high interests, indicating to go beyond their financial limits to sign the highly rated Arsenal star.

Juve are ready to splash £180,000-per-week, £80,000 more than their highest earning goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon, in a bid to compete with City, who are willing to offer a whopping £225,000-per-week.

However, Juve are also interested in Napoli striker Edinson Cavani while AC Milan are also monitoring Van Persie's situation.

Meanwhile, Arsenal are lining up a move for Borrusia Dortmund striker Robert Lewandowski and Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic in case they fail to keep Van Persie.

Van Persie, 28, is set to have face-to-face discussions with manager Arsene Wenger after completing his summer vacations in about 10 days time.

The Dutch striker, who managed to score once at the Euro 2012 finals tournament, is currently earning £130,000-per-week. But with City's huge salary offer, the Blue side of Manchester is likely to be the next destination for Van Persie.
