Manchester United Agree £23m Deal With Arsenal For Robin van Persie

Manchester United has agreed terms with Robin van Persie to sign the Arsenal striker, the club announced today.

“The deal is subject to a medical and the agreement of personal terms,” said a Manchester United club statement. “A further announcement will be made in due course.”

Arsenal Football Club has confirmed the news. “Arsenal Football Club can confirm that terms have been agreed for the transfer of Robin van Persie to Manchester United. Van Persie will travel to Manchester on Thursday in order to agree personal terms and complete a medical ahead of the proposed move.”

Finally after much debate of will he or won’t he, Robin van Persie will come to Manchester United.

For the past few weeks since the end of Euro 2012, RVP was linked to Manchester City, Manchester United and Juventus after he made it plainly obvious that he wasn’t going to stay with Arsenal

The debate can now begin if this deal will be the cutting edge that the Red Devils need to keep Manchester City from winning the title this year.

Does RVP’s signing alter the playing field at the top of the table? Can he remain healthy this season? The bigger question still is how will he co-exist with Wayne Rooney up front?

I guess we will see come kick off on Monday if all goes well.

But, now that Arsenal has some pocket change and short of a striker…what will they spend it on, if anyone?
