One of the most interesting transfer saga finally came to an end today, as Manchester United concluded the deal involving Robin Van Persie, 29, and Arsenal, with a transfer fee amounting to £24M between both clubs, but only after Sir Alex met Arsene Wenger personally to clear the air. The news hit the football world like a tsunami on Wednesday, when Arsenal finally agreed on the fee offered by Man Utd, but Van Persie was away on international friendly duty, and both parties had to wait for yesterday night for him to have a medical at Manchester and eventually signing a 4 year deal today.
Robin van Persie said: “It’s an honour to sign for Manchester United. I am looking forward to following in the footsteps of so many great strikers, bringing my experience and playing my part to help the team compete for the biggest trophies in the game. I can’t wait to get started.”
