World News – GB – Man City urged to sign Man Utd to beat Liverpool in Premier League title


Manchester City have to make a similar signing as Robin van Persie joined Manchester United to save their Premier League title hopes, according to former Liverpool midfielder Don Hutchison United bought Van Persie at Arsenal in 2012 for £ 24million and the Dutchman was instrumental in winning the Red Devils title in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in charge at Old Trafford

After winning the Golden Boot in the previous campaign at Arsenal, Van Persie picked up the accolade again after scoring 26 goals in his debut season at United

Hutchison believes this is the type of forward City need to bring before next Monday’s transfer deadline

Pep Guardiola’s side were beaten 5-2 by Leicester at the Etihad on Sunday, with Jamie Vardy clinching his second career hat-trick against City

And Hutchison suggested Vardy could be the man for City to reclaim the title of defending champions Liverpool

The expert told ESPN FC: « It could be a topic for another day, but when Robin van Persie went to Man United for this season and secured the title to Man United, it’s almost like if Guardiola had to do it with Jamie Vardy

Meanwhile ex-Manchester United captain Roy Keane cannot see City close the gap on Liverpool even if they add players before the window closes

« I still think they are recovering from the loss of [Vincent] Kompany, » Keane told Sky Sports

« Obviously we all saw him on the weekends, but I think what the guy was probably doing during the week was such a great leader for them, definitely a great character

« Okay Leicester are a very good team and they are good for the future and a huge credit to them

« They say Pep is obviously a high intensity type of guy, this is his fifth year at the club, and sometimes maybe players, and it sounds crazy to say it, but sometimes we are fed up with the same voice, that’s just the nature of the modern footballer

« [But] in terms of City closing the gap with Liverpool – forget that I can’t see it »
