Very recently, it was reported in Arsenal.com that Robin van Persie will be heading to Manchester United. After being linked to big clubs such as reigning Premier League champions, Manchester City, and reigning Italian champions, Juventus, the Dutchman has finally found a destination.
The whole transfer saga started out with van Persie's refusal to Arsenal's contract. This was the stimulus to the other big clubs to make an effort to sign the prolific scorer.
After what seemed to be a successful summer for the Gunners, with the signings of Lukas Podolski, Olivier Giroud, and Santi Cazorla, the transfer window situation became bleak with van Persie's official departure.
So, with their star captain heading out the doors of the Emirates, the looks of Arsenal's upcoming season have changed.
Now that van Persie is out of the Arsenal picture, here is what will change for Arsenal's upcoming season and the rest of the transfer window.
