London: Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson has taunted Roberto Mancini by insisting that Robin van Persie would never have joined Manchester City.

City boss Mancini claimed last week that van Persie's fine form for much of the season is the only reason United are on course to win the Premier League title.

Ferguson's team are 15 points clear of second-placed City heading into Monday's Manchester derby at Old Trafford and van Persie has played a key role with 19 league goals since his £24 million ($37 million, 28-million-euro) move from Arsenal in August.
