City skipper eyes RVP boost
Vincent Kompany is hoping that Manchester City can win the race for Robin van Persie, claiming he would be an 'unbelievable addition'.
The 26-year-old skipper, who is currently struggling to overcome a calf injury which forced him to miss City's 3-1 friendly win against a Malaysian XI on Monday, has spoken out about the ongoing battle to sign Arsenal's Dutch international striker, Van Persie. City, Manchester United and Italian champions Juventus are embroiled in a three-way scrap to try and sign Van Persie, who has indicated that he wants to leave the Gunners after refusing to sign a new contract at the Emirates Stadium beyond next summer. And Kompany is keeping his fingers crossed that City chief Roberto Mancini will come out on top and take the player to the Etihad Stadium. The Belgium international said: "He's a player who has improved so much. I started playing against him five or six years ago, but his performances last season were unbelievable. "A player like this would be an incredible addition to any team that he joined, his movement is near perfection and the stats show his finishing. "He has led by example at Arsenal so, yes, he is a great player." If Van Persie does opt to move elsewhere, Kompany is still backing to City to improve this summer and he is looking to win the title in every season he spends at the club. He added: "I have signed a six-year deal, so there are six titles possible within those years, so you know what? I want to get them all. "It probably won't happen, but we will see in six years' time. I will try everything for that."
