Manchester United have announced the signing of Arsenal striker Robin van Persie on a four-year contract.

The Dutchman’s future has been under scrutiny for weeks after he revealed he wouldn’t be signing a new contract at the Emirates, and several clubs were vying for his signature.

However, United agreed a fee with the Gunners on Wednesday and the striker headed north to undergo a medical and discuss personal terms.

United have now announced on ManUtd.com that van Persie passed his medical and agreed terms on a four-year contract, with the deal being completed in time for him to make his debut against Everton on Monday night.

On the deal Sir Alex Ferguson told the clubs official website:

“Robin is a world-class striker with a proven record in England and in European football. His talents need no introduction to our fans – he has scored a number of goals against us in some classic battles with his former club. His movement, finishing and all-round ability are outstanding.”

Robin van Persie said it’s an honor for him to be signing for United and he looks forward to competing for trophies:

“It’s an honour to sign for Manchester United. I am looking forward to following in the footsteps of so many great strikers, bringing my experience and playing my part to help the team compete for the biggest trophies in the game. I can’t wait to get started.”

So van Persie is officially a Manchester United player. Will he carry on with his goal-scoring exploits of last season when he scored 30 goals in 38 games for the Gunners? Will he run away with the golden boot again? If you think so and fancy placing a bet on it, do your football betting on Top Bet to get some great odds.
