Having seen first hand the impact of selling Robin Van Persie to Manchester United, Arsene Wenger has vowed he won’t be sell United a player again.

Van Persie swapped the Emirates for Old Trafford last summer in a £24m move, and United instantly reaped the rewards with his goals getting United out of a number of sticky situations.

Having lost the title on goal difference last May, Sir Alex’s investment has paid dividends as United jogged to the title with Van Persie’s goals playing a huge part in the ease with which his new side were able to reclaim the title.

Bizzarely Wenger was asked about Sir Alex’s transfer plans this summer to which the French man replied:

“I don’t know but he will not sign them from us.”

There are few players in Arsenal’s team that would improve United, but I expect this firmly closes the door on any United move for the one player that has always intrigued United fans, Jack Wilshere.

    It’s funny how you united fans and football pundits,go on about van Persie leaving for trophies.sir Alex even tried to talk about the special reception united fans gave their former stars eh.I can remember Carlos tevez recieving this special reception every time city play united,when they won the league last season that must of justified his decision.You can write as many articles as you like,van Persie supported arsenal as a kid and knew he could have joined any other teams apart from spurs,Chelsea and Man U,had he done so the arsenal fans would have rememberd him a legend but he chose to join our arch enemies instead.Don’t start talking about trophies because apart from the last two seasons,he’s always injured when it comes to the crunch.

      How are Man Utd your rivals exactly? Are you talking 10 years ago?
      You’re a team that scrapes the top 4, you are a selling club that’s a fact so it’s about time you realised that.
