So far Arsenal have refused to budge, unwilling to sell their star striker to a one time rival, but with Van Persie apparently keen on a move to Old Trafford it seems Wenger will have accept a United offer or lose the player on a free.
Wenger named Van Persie as a sub in the friendly against Cologne on Sunday and the Dutchman didn’t receive a warm welcome by Arsenal fans. Van Persie wanting to leave is key to the deal, and it is because of this that Parlour believes United can get themselves a snip as he told Talksport:
“Manchester United have been a little bit cheeky with their bid of £15million.
“They know he’s desperate to leave and they are trying to nick him for £15million. He would be a bargain at that price.”
