Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson was in talks with his medical team yesterday after returning from his trip to New York.

The Daily Star says Fergie returned from a holiday in America yesterday and was straight on to his medical team for information.

And his main concern is the fitness of £24m new signing Robin van Persie who damaged his thigh during Holland's midweek World Cup qualifier against Hungary and was replaced at half-time.

Van Persie has plundered four goals already this season and the United manager will be keen for him to line up against the Wigan Athletic.
