Vincent Kompany says he would reject a move to Arsenal - even if he was offered £60m and two Ferraris.

The Manchester City captain made the claim in a Twitter exchange with vocal Arsenal supporter Piers Morgan.

Kompany was tweeting throughout last night's game between the Gunners and his former side Anderlecht as the Belgian side came from three goals down to claim a famous 3-3 draw at the Emirates.

The tweets from the captain of the Belgian national side caught the attention of broadcaster and former newspaper editor Morgan who started by asking Kompany: "If I pay you £50m will you come and play for us?"

Kompany politely rejected Morgan's advance before the offer was increased by £10m with a couple of Italian cars thrown in for good measure. Kompany still wasn't interested.

Despite declining the offer from Morgan, the 28-year-old defender could be just what Arsenal need judging by last night's capitulation.
