Robin van Persie may have signed with Manchester United, but that’s certainly not the last move you’ll hear of.
In a transfer that shook the sports world, the Premier League’s top scorer Robin van Persie was picked up by Manchester United and left Arsenal. With him, the Dutch striker carries a rejuvenated energy that may help Manchester United edge their talent over rival Manchester City. Furthermore, fans may expect that players from across the world will be interested in playing with an already spectacular lineup including Wayne Rooney and the Dutch star.
Many wondered if the van Persie move had anything to do with Man U’s past inability to sign David Silva. If so, the impassioned Manchester United club garnered much praise for their move.
“We never thought we’d get van Persie. Robin is a world-class striker with a proven record in England and in European football," said Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson (via Goal.com). "His talents need no introduction to our fans. His movement, finishing and all-round ability are outstanding."
But when asked if Manchester United was interested in bringing more players in, administration seemed optimistic.
