The wantaway Arsenal striker finally gets his wish as he looks set to join Wayne Rooney and co at Old Trafford.
Arsenal have confirmed that terms have been agreed with Premier League rivals Manchester United for Dutch striker Robin Van Persie.
Last season’s top goalscorer fired an incredible 30 goals in the top-flight last season and will travel to Manchester on Thursday to agree personal terms and complete a medical ahead of the proposed move.
Van Persie, who has expressed his desire to leave the Emirates Stadium, looks set to sign a four-year deal at Old Trafford for a reported fee of £24million. The Netherlands international is likely to spearhead a formidable attack for the Red Devils, as Wayne Rooney finished behind the 29-year-old with 27 strikes last season.
Sir Alex Ferguson has finally got his marquee signing of the summer, beating neighbours Manchester City and Italian giants Juventus to the signature of the wantaway hitman after the acquisition of Crewe youngster Nick Powell and Japanese midfielder Shinji Kagawa.
