Ex-Lancashire and England cricketer Neil Fairbrother sent the transfer rumour-mill into overdrive after he claimed to have seen Robin Van Persie in Greater Manachester yesterday.
Fairbrother reported via twitter “Just grabbing some lunch in Hale – RVP just walked in! long way from Emirates!!! #redorblue?”
Man City have long been suitors for RVP, whose contract runs out next season with the rumour mill suggesting it is a forgone conclusion. Sir Alex is known to be a great admirer of his talents as well with MUFC scouts reportedly keen on him back in his Feynoord days.
Gunner’s boss Arsene Wenger remains confident that he can keep hold of the Dutch striker though. “I am certain Robin will remain with us,” he said. Though Aresene is not really to be trusted on the transfer front remember last season in relation to Cesc and Samir??
My two cents here is City will move heaven and earth to make this happen don’t expect United to come up with something attractive enough to turn his head.
