Manchester United: How Robin Van Persie Changes Man Utd

Use your ← → (arrow) keys to browse more stories

With Robin van Persie's move to Manchester United complete, the table is set for one of the most potent attacks in world football. So is that what we should expect from United this season?

After moving from Arsenal, van Persie now takes his place alongside English superstar Wayne Rooney in United's strikeforce. That could spell bad news for opposing defenses.

Van Persie, 29, scored an English Premier League-best 30 league goals last season, and for his work, the Dutch striker was named the league's top player by both his peers and the media.

Rooney is no slouch, either. The 26-year-old remains England's most recognized attacking talent around the world, and last season, Rooney finished second in the Premier League with 27 goals.

So it's all smooth sailing from here, right?

Watch as B/R world football writers Will Tidey and Michael Cummings discuss how van Persie's arrival will change United, from formation issues to selection headaches to injury concerns.
