United and Arsenal continue to negotiate over Van Persie
Negotiations between Arsenal and Manchester United were ongoing on Tuesday night, with the pair trying to conclude a deal for Robin van Persie, The Daily Mail claim.
The 2011-12 PFA Player of the Year has confirmed his intention to leave the north London club, with the Old Trafford outfit currently leading the chase for the Netherlands international.
Arsene Wenger’s men are believed to have rejected at least one approach from the Red Devils, however it is thought that United are closing in on Arsenal’s valuation of their skipper.
United are ready to offer at least £20 million for Van Persie, which Arsenal could well accept.
Manchester City and Juventus were also keen on the Dutch maestro, but the pair have since pulled out of the race and turned their attention to other targets.
