Though the deal is said to be finalized, the Dutch is yet to finish up some paperwork and clear the medicals. The club confirmed the news on its twitter account saying “Alex Ferguson confident Robin Van Persie will make debut against Everton Monday.” This will be the first league fixture into the new season. Robin Van Persie was signed to Arsenal in the year 2004. In the years that followed, he scored a total of 132 goals and made 277 appearances.

Manchester United has a deadly duo now: Wayne Rooney and Robin Van Persie. He was the footballer of the year, twice, and the top scorer in the last Premier League. The two can bring to the team what is desperately needed to the team. It has been a while since their last premier league title although the addition of another striker could mean more work. Rooney does not have the best reputation for being formidable with his fellow striker mates in the team. Not that he has an obligation to. He let himself be the second-man when Ronaldo was kicking in all the goals. A great team player, however that was that time. His name has sky-rocketed ever since and he is unlikely to let another take the lead.

Now that Van Persie has made his entry in the team, the crucial question arises as to how Rooney and him will play together. One will have to be right behind the other and neither of the two will want to.

Arsenal Manager Wenger had said a couple years ago that they brought in players with careful selection and meticulous consideration, not to sell them out again. He wanted all of them to learn, grow and flourish together in the team. With Van Persie taking the leave now, the season is going to be prove very expensive to Arsenal.

Van Persie’s transfer fee comes down to 24 million pounds as well as an extravagant salary. After Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri, Persie will cause another heartache to the team, its fans and certainly to Wenger.
