Manchester City should partner van Persie with Aguero

Liverpool have upset the trendsetters who insist that playing two strikers is a flawed system; with materialistic envy we will likely see teams endeavor to bring together a dreamy partnership. For Manchester City, it could be Robin van Persie and Sergio Aguero.

We know money isn't a massive deal for City's cash-rich owners and they're always looking for the best players to style their sky blue kits. 

We also know that Manchester United's Robin van Persie has been courted in the past by their Manchester rivals; much like a naughty love triangle with two alpha-males. 

Like any other unlucky-in-love soul; the club should not be deterred that he choose their dearest rival, they might have a better chance of attracting Robin now.

After topping the Premier League scoring sheets last season on his way to a maiden Premier League title, van Persie has fared much worse this season.

In David Moyes' first season as manager United have slipped to seventh and on a personal level, the flying Dutchman has been beset by injuries and poor form with only 11 league goals. They might want to cash in and fund Moyes' summer shopping trip around the world.

At the age of 30, RVP needs to make sure his career doesn't grind to a anti-climactic halt. An exciting partnership with Aguero could breed a fresh new beginning.

Part of the package in keeping van Persie past his expiry date is to pair him with someone who can do all the running for him, Aguero is just that.

Wayne Rooney has been a great partner for van Persie but he will not want to do the extra running left by his Old Trafford colleague as he enters the next phase of his career.

Edin Dzeko and Alvaro Negredo may feel that they are amble support for Aguero at City but neither have the goalscoring ability of the former Arsenal star; van Persie is better with the ball at his feet as well and he is every bit as aerially dominant as the aforementioned duo. 

You wouldn't have to worry about any adaptation either, both know the ins and outs of the top flight now.

A pairing would be a thing of beauty for City and with their strong midfield mixed with solid defence, it would weld all elements together for an irrepressible force; perhaps even better than the much vaunted 'SAS' at Anfield.

Stop licking your lips Manchester City fans....
