According to the Daily Mail, City are optimistic Van Persie, 28, will not sign a new deal at the Emirates, meaning Arsenal will be forced to sell in the summer as their captain will have only a year left on his contract.
Mancini said: ‘Van Persie is incredible. He is like Sergio Aguero here for us. At the moment he is fantastic. To score all those goals is incredible.’ (ANI)
