Man Utd move ahead of Man City in chase for Arsenal star
Manchester United have reportedly moved ahead of rivals Manchester City in the race to sign Arsenal ace Robin van Persie.
But the Mirror reports that Italian giants Juventus are now the favourites to sign the highly-rated Dutchman.
Van Persie is keen on a move away from the Premier League this summer.
Juventus are reportedly prepared to pay Van Persie around £180,000-a-week.
A source close to the deal told The Mirror: "The Premier League is not the be all and end all, like it might for an English player.
"Van Persie is Dutch, has a different mindset and other big players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic have had good careers in Italy."
