Juventus are ready to offer a huge £70m package to land Arsenal’s want-away striker Robin van Persie, according to the Mirror.

The Italian champions will meet the Gunners £20m fee they are demanding for their captain, as well as offer the Dutchman a mammoth £190,ooo-a-week after tax five-year contract.

The Mirror claim the Italian champions general manager, Giuseppe Marotta, held further talks with Van Persie’s agent and informed them they are prepared to beat any offer made by Man Utd or Man City.

United boss Sir Alex Ferguson remains confident he can persuade RVP to join him at Old Trafford but the sticking point remains money. Fergie is unwilling to pay in excess of £15m for a soon-to-be 29-year-old with little sell-on value, who has a poor injury record and is in the final year of his current contract.

United are also reluctant to pay the Holland striker more than £200,000-a-week, but van Persie is understood to want equal pay with United’s top earner, Wayne Rooney, at £220,000-a-week if he was to move to Old Trafford.

Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini is desperate to land van Persie, but City officials have made it clear they will have to sell before they can buy and have so far been unable to offload high earners Emmanuel Adebayor or Eden Dzeko.

The Mirror also suggest that despite their big spending in recent seasons, City are not prepared to offer the player more than £150,000-a-week.

This leaves Juve as favourites to land the 30-goal striker, with Arsenal said to favour selling abroad rather than to a Premier League rival. However, the most important thing to the Londoners is someone meets their £20m+ valuation, and the Italians are so far the only club prepared to do so.

If the Mirror’s report is accurate and Juve are prepared to pay £20m for van Persie as well as offer him the wages he wants, there is every chance this could happen. It would all come down to the player and whether he’s willing to uproot his family and move to Italy, which only RVP can answer.

      Robin van Persie does not agree with the way AFC should move foward and that is not due to the fact he wants 220000 pound a week cheers he’s robin us

    Ahem, could you kindly refrain from this kind of tampering with your headlines? It’s not a 70 million offer, as Arsenal are supposedly expected to receive merely 20 million. The rest is not offered to Arsenal, but to RVP. Unless you identify RVP with Arsenal as such, these are two different packages.
    The story is interesting, if only for the fact that it’s hard to conceive of Juve as having as much money to spend on one player.

    Don’t think anyone would offer 29 5 year deal outright.

    I prefer him to go to Italy lets take the 20M and reinvest in the team.

    Shame it ended this way he has acted like a prick and his memory is tainted

    I hope that RVP does go to Juve, myself and a lot of City fans don’t want him at City, he is too old and will be a gamble for the price tag and the wages. The market for players is crazy at the moment and he should have snapped the new contract with Arsenal when he was offered. Unfortunately, his agent has told him what to say and I think he will stay at Arsenal until end of 2013 season.

    If he goes to United, good luck to him, but not to United of coarse, IPO situation shows the Glazers are desperate, how many years until debt needs to be paid?
