Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is excited about the prospect of signing Arsenal striker Robin van Persie.

The Daily Star Sunday says an official bid of £20million will be enough to get Van Persie, 28, to Old Trafford.

Ferguson is more confident than ever that he has got his man after patiently waiting for the deal to go through this summer.

Ferguson, who has already snapped up £12m Shinji Kagawa and Nick Powell from Crewe, promised he would be back in the transfer market.

And now Ferguson cannot wait to capture the dynamic Dutchman to boost United’s squad as they battle to snatch the title back from Manchester City.
