In a topsy turvy summer of transfer activity so far for Manchester United, there are at least still some strands of positivity for the Old Trafford club.
It is now generally accepted that, despite the riches on offer elsewhere, Robin Van Persie wants to join Manchester United . While The Reds have lost out to rivals Manchester City in most of the big transfer tussles of the last couple of years, this one will leave City fans sore and United fans elated – if the deal does eventually go through.
‘Van Persie has told the club that he wants to leave and would prefer to join United rather than Juventus.’
Now it is up to Manchester United to stump up the necessary cash to make the deal happen. The player wants to come, so Manchester United must open up the coffers to show that they really want this world class player. What is £20m for a 29 year old if that player helps the team to domestic and European glory?
We think that this is a deal that United simply must do if they are to remain at the top of the English game while Danny Welbeck and Chicharito develop their highly promising games.
It’s almost impossible to imagine how good RVP and Wayne Rooney can be together. It’s a must see event. A deal might well be concluded as early as this weekend as David Gill is planning to be in London for other club business.
