Manchester United to sign Van Persie today?

After the highly disappointing developments with Lucas Moura over the last 24 hours, Manchester United fans will welcome the latest news in the Robin Van Persie chase.

The Manchester Evening News reports today that Robin Van Persie could fly into the North West to complete a much mooted deal that will bring him to Manchester United ‘as early as tonight’.

The Lucas Moura deal seemed all but done over the weekend but, despite already having their full quota of overseas stars in their squad, Qatari owned PSG have made a last minute bid which has blown Manchester United out of the water. PSG have offered more money for the player and he will only come to United now if he stresses that Old Trafford is his preferred destination. But he is quoted today by Sky Sports as saying that he is excited by the prospect of going to Paris.

“I’ll stay at Sao Paulo until the end of the year. Things are well underway.”

“If it happens in January, I’ll be able to do that for Sao Paulo.”

“I’m focused on the national team. I can only say something after the Olympics. It’s well underway, but not done.”

“I talked to Thiago Silva and Leonardo, they said many good things about the club, the project they are implementing there.”

So, mixed news for Manchester United fans. The Van Persie deal would be a major boost for the club but speculation will continue about the need for another top draw midfielder before the window closes.

    Interesting, they are posting pictures of RVP arriving in Germany with the Arsenal squad and pictures of him training there with them.
    I don’t see this deal happening tonight.

    hmm……what a great news for Manchester united i think sir alex Ferguson should please sign moura because he is a great player and van persie also. if Ferguson has this players we will beat man city, Chelsea and others……..i think united should use this formation
    DE GEE, Rafael, Ferdinand, Vidic, Ever, Ashely young, kagawa, scholes, Nani, Rooney, van persie. i think this formation will help us to beat man city.

    It’s a good boost for United, only that Hernandez & Wellbeck shouldn’t be under-utilized by Sir Alex.

    i will like man u to buy both of the players, if it can be possible for them. But they should try to buy Ver p, so that it will easily for Rooney and for the club to regain our tittle again.
