The idea of Robin Van Persie going to Manchester United is still quite difficult to believe. However, The Guardian has this afternoon reported that United have indeed tabled a bid for the Dutchman, in an attempt to steal him from ‘neath the noses of noisy neighbours.
Arsenal are said to have rejected the bid, wanting £20m for the player. But Manchester United’s intentions are now clear. They want RVP in tandem with WR – mmm, not as catchy….
City have yet to fully show their diamond encrusted hand on this one so we think it’s still a long shot that he will end up at Old Trafford. But these are very interesting developments. We shall keep you posted.
