Welcome RVP to United
MANCHESTER UNITED have agreed a deal with Arsenal to sign Robin van Persie.
The transfer will be completed as soon as the Dutch striker passes a medical and agrees terms with United.
An official club statement said: “Manchester United are pleased to announce an agreement with Arsenal Football Club for Robin van Persie.
“The deal is subject to a medical and the agreement of personal terms. A further announcement will be made in due course.”
Van Persie, 29, netted 37 goals in all competitions last term, 30 of which were in the Premier League.
His capture will be music to the ears of United boss Alex Ferguson, who has long been an admirer of the Holland international.
