Man Utd want £22M Van Persie deal sealed before Monday

Arsenal are on the brink of selling Robin van Persie to Manchester United. The Sun says Arsenal were last night set to cave in and strike a deal with Manchester United for Van Persie.

They are ready to start serious talks with United boss Alex Ferguson hoping to seal a £22million move before the weekend's Premier League opener.

United and Italian giants Juventus have yet to improve offers of £15m.

But Van Persie, 29, was jeered by his own fans in Sunday's win over Cologne in Germany and is now desperate for a move to be completed.

United see that as the opening to force through a deal.
