Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes that the club has done enough to convince wantaway Arsenal skipper Robin van Persie to join them, and is confident that the Dutchman will ignore the lures of Juventus and city rivals Manchester City, who are also attempting to sign the frontman.
Van Persie has been involved in one of the summer’s biggest transfer sagas, this after the frontman declared that he wouldn’t sign a contract extension at the Emirates after his current deal expired.
Interest for the striker has been strong, with both Manchester clubs and reigning Serie A champions Juventus all linked with the player who scored 30 times for the Gunners last term.
For a while, it seemed as though the Red Devils had dropped out of the race to sign the forward, but Sir Alex Ferguson now believes that the £20 million-rated frontman will be joining Wayne Rooney to form what would be a quite formidable partnership upfront.
Arsenal, on the other hand, would not want to sell Van Persie to rivals United, but seem to have little choice at the moment, with the player set to leave for free next summer if the North London side do not let him before the start of the next season.
Van Persie returned to the Emirates earlier this week to join up with the rest of the Arsenal squad for pre-season after getting an extended break due to his Euro 2012 participation.
