Man Utd Join Race To Sign Robin Van Persie

Manchester United are interested in signing Arsenal striker Robin van Persie, according to talkSPORT.

As all Arsenal fans will know by now, RVP has just one year left on his current deal and speculation over his future intensified after the 28-year-old decided to delay extension talks until the end of the season.

Talks with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger are planned for next week where the Frenchman will do his best to persuade the 35-goal striker that his future is in North London.

However, talkSPORT report today that Manchester United have now joined Man City, Real Madrid  and Juventus in the race to try and sign the talented Dutchman this summer. Here is a quote from talkSPORT:

“talkSPORT understands United have already sounded out the possibility of van Persie making a switch to Old Trafford, and are prepared to splash out big on the former Feyenoord man.”

I was wondering when this rumour would surface. I had a feeling United would soon be linked with Van P. At this stage is has to be treated as nothing more than gossip but should the Dutchman move this summer, i would sooner see him join United than City.

I’m fed up with Arsenal being City’s ‘feeder club’, so if Van Persie leaves this summer and stays in England, then hopefully Sir Alex Ferguson can tempt him to Old Trafford.

Don’t get me wrong, i obviously don’t want RVP to leave (my writers name is RVP10 after all), and I in fact believe he will be with Arsenal for at least another season, i’m just saying if he does go, then i don’t want him to end up with Nasri et all at City.

    There is no chance he would go to either manchester clubs, maybe abroad for silly money but never to manchester. I can’t believe some of the rubbish poeple write.

    If he leave there no way Arsenal can let him go to any of the Manchester clubs – sell him abroad to R Madrid, Barcelona, Juventus, PSG or that Russian club with tons of money and get silly money for him.

    I’m surprised you’d prefer RVP join to ManU rather than ManC.
    After all, bearing in mind that you must consider ManU to be your biggest rival and also knowing how good he is, if he does join ManU then Arsenal will have absolutely no chance of winning the title again next season.
    Wishng him to ManU rather than ManC is like biting off your nose to spite your face.
    Best to just let him join ManC…where he can while away his time on the bench and be no trouble to anybody.

    Why would you want RVP to go United, are you stupid! Atleast if he goes to City we can say it was we couldn’t compete on the money! But we lack even more ambition to let him go to United, they’re not much better than us! If he has to go, sell him to Madrid or exchange him for Higuian…

      “They’re not that much better than us” 21 points behind us in the league, 8-2 at old trafford. 2-1 at emirates. You’re a muppet.

    As a City fan I would like to state I do not like Van Percie as a person, he’s better off with pnasy boy Cristiano ronaldo at Real Madrid where they can pamper him.

    Manchester City have better strikers aka Aguero and Tevez, I pray to god Van Percie does not arrive at the Etihad stadium.

    He will be great addition to manU but how are we going to pay for him while the glazers are there and fergie agreeing to everything they say.
    No chance of that happening as the owners never had any love for the club while ferguson keeps telling us there is no one out there worth buying while City keep buying the best players.
    We are all being taken for a ride so no season ticket for me after 44 years !!
    I can understand us being rubbish but I don’t accept all the silly lies we are told.
    Good luck for next season we’ll need it.

    Stop imagining and writing nonsense. Don’t you have better things to think of? The next thing will be that RVP, Wallcot, Song, Ox, and Vermalean are on their. Way to Spurs.

    TalkSport spreading anti-Arsenal propaganda-surely not. Don’t give credence to this garbage.RVP will not move to another English club.He is possibly on his way but not to ManU.

    Don’t even waste your time talking about this. Van Persie WILL definitely stay at Arsenal and will sign a new contract next week.

    why would he lives now?he should remember that when the going was bad for him, the club stood by him.The only way to show that he’s grateful is to commit his future to arsenal.

    Course he would love to go to united ! Him and Rooney up top would be amazing and to say Manu are the same as the gunners is amazingly stupid ! Look how many points behind you are ! And we are joint top ! To win the league on goal difference would be rubbish I think compared to winning it by 5 points. Also manu could pay him loads as Rooney is on a massive amount and considering berb is going thats over 100k towards his wages an he can have Owens and parks as the exit door is open for them also.
