DUTCH STRIKER Robin van Persie has completed his move to Manchester United.
The Old Trafford club confirmed they had agreed a fee with Arsenal earlier this week, and after a medical yesterday the final elements of the transfer have been wrapped up. The deal has been done in time for Van Persie to go straight into Alex Ferguson’s squad for Monday’s trip to Everton.
United announced in a statement: “Robin van Persie has completed his medical, agreed personal terms and signed for Manchester United on a four-year contract until June 2016.”
The 29-year-old’s signing is a significant coup for the United boss after he persuaded van Persie to snub an offer from Premier League champions Manchester City.
