The Belgium international responded to a Twitter invitation from celebrity Gunners fan Piers Morgan by insisting he would have no interest in a move to the Emirates
Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany has insisted that he would never consider joining Premier League rivals Arsenal – even for £60 million (€76m) and two Ferraris.
The Belgium international was responding to a Tweet from celebrity fan Piers Morgan, who had optimistically enquired as to whether he would consider a move to the Emirates.
The enquiry came as Arsenal threw away a three-goal lead against Anderlecht in the Champions League on Tuesday, with the 3-3 draw ensuring they would miss out on the chance to qualify for the knockout stages on the night.
Kompany, a former player for the Belgian champions, was quick to laugh off the suggestion of a move, though, insisting that while Arsenal are a “great club”, he would never be interested in a switch to north London.
“@piersmorgan: £60m & 2 Ferraris?” Those days have gone Pearsie, I play for glory. 🙂

Kompany’s City side face a crucial Champions League group stage clash with CSKA Moscow on Wednesday, where anything but a victory would likely see them struggle to qualify for the latter stages.
