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.


  1. if u would hav told me last year that we would sign van persie and miss out onmoura. I would have been estatic and asked u but moura who? PSG will go the malaga way soon.

  2. Hurrayyyyyy united fans,thats good news for you but the questions is that can Arsene wenger
    sell his star striker to arch rivals united???

  3. R.V.P will only remain respected by arsenal fans if he departs anywhere elsae other than 2 Man united,which are d biggest gunners rivals.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. manunited needs players who wants to join the club frm der heart like kagawa….such players vit great determination vill make difference not like moura who is after money….i would love to see van persie joing manunited and he can surely have an impact…..sir alex forget moura, soop in persie and another midfielder…..

  7. I really don’t see this deal happening today or possibly at all…. Not that I wouldn’t love it to happen, but I do think rvp will now sign a new contract with arsenal

  8. Keep on dreaming ( all u Man divided fans). Rvp trans presently wif gooner square in Germany. Can wait 4 arsenalfc vs Man divided fc game. We sure gonna kill dem dis tym.

  9. Ecstacy!rvp is a gud player,but i tink we better hav midfielders as we ar avin strikers for moura pls sir fergie let him go manu nid a hearted player

  10. VP playing wif united wil b a very strong squad,along syd wif rooney,bt my questn is dat “is dis rumour nt going 2 b lyk dat of moura’s own”?i wil b hapi if dis rumour cum 2 reality.

  11. As we play yesterday with barcelona im sure man u can win 20th premier league this season, so RVP if u want lift the cup join wining team.becouse we are the king of premier league
