Robin Van Persie Leaves Arsenal For Man.U

Before you guys start thinking I know anything about football, dont get carried away cos I don't! there has been so much hype since last night on my TL and BB, I figured it would make good read. So I got the news below from ESPN this morning. Things I do for my readers. *deep sigh*
Well if there is one thing I know though is that Arsenal has not been winning trophies for a while, so maybe the guy just wants to go somewhere that does!


Manchester United is set to complete the signing of Robin van Persie from Arsenal on Thursday after the Premier League rivals reached an agreement over the sale of the Netherlands striker.
Both clubs released statements on their websites on Wednesday saying personal terms still needed to be agreed upon and that a deal was subject to a medical examination.
The Dutchman, who joined from Feyenoord in 2004, was the Premier League's top scorer last season with 30 goals. But he refused to sign a new contract with Arsenal, saying he wasn't happy with the direction the club was heading."Arsenal Football Club can confirm that terms have been agreed for the transfer of Robin van Persie to Manchester United," the Arsenal statement said. "Van Persie will travel to Manchester on Thursday in order to agree to personal terms and complete a medical ahead of the proposed move."
Arsenal hasn't won a trophy since 2005 and has been unable to keep hold of its leading players in recent seasons, with midfielders Cesc Fabregas joining Barcelona and no fewer than four players having left for Premier League champion Manchester City -- Samir Nasri, Emmanuel Adebayor, Kolo Toure and Gael Clichy -- since 2009.
Berbatov would be the player likely to make way for Van Persie.
Since announcing on his personal website last month that he wouldn't be signing a new contract with Arsenal, the 29-year-old Van Persie has also been linked with City and Juventus. But United has emerged in the past two weeks as the club most likely to come forward with a bid.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger has already planned for a future without Van Persie by signing French striker Olivier Giroud and German forward Lukas Podolski in the close season.
