Sharpe, 41, says RVP‚Äôs movement allows Rooney the space to pull the strings for the Dutchman, who has hit 12 top-flight goals for the league leaders already this season.
He told the Daily Star: ‚ÄúVan Persie has been an unbelievable buy for United and you can see Rooney is enjoying playing alongside him so much.
‚ÄúTheir partnership is growing and the ¬≠understanding is getting better with each game.
‚ÄúAnd that is why I see United winning the title, because they are only going to get better. Yes, City and maybe Chelsea will have a say ‚Äď but these two players are irrepressible.
‚ÄúVan Persie being up top has taken the burden off Rooney and given him more time and space.‚ÄĚ
