Mancini waits for RVP call
Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini during training
Van Persie is a reported Manchester City target after the Dutchman announced he would not be renewing his Arsenal contract when it expires in 2013.
"When you talk about Manchester City, Manchester United and Juve, it is difficult for a player to choose between those three clubs," Mancini told Sky Sports News.
"They are all top teams and I've no idea what will happen with him. If we have a chance to take him, we will try because we think he is a top striker.
"For now he is an Arsenal player and I think Arsenal are a top team. It is not easy for Van Persie and other players to leave them."
