ADEBAYOROUT VAN PERSIE IN; SPURS HOLD KEY TO MANCINI'S ROBIN BID EXCLUSIVE City Must Dump Manu to Land Dutch Ace


Byline: MATT LAW

ARSENAL'S hopes of keeping Robin van Persie could rest with London rivals Tottenham and hated former striker Emmanuel Adebayor.

Arsenal officials fear Van Persie has already made up his mind to quit the Emirates after failing to sign a new contract and making it clear he wants to win trophies.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is keen to capitalise on the stand-off and is planning to launch a EUR25million bid for Van Persie, but has been told he must offload at least one big earner first.

Despite Mancini's frustration, City will try to wait until either Adebayor or Edin Dzeko, who saw a move to Bayern Munich falter in recent weeks, leave Eastlands before officially contacting Arsenal about Van Persie.

Adebayor scored 18 goals on loan at Spurs last season and is keen to return to White Hart Lane, rather than move abroad or go back to City. …
