Published Add your comment

Sir Alex Ferguson has confirmed Manchester United had made a bid for Arsenal captain Robin van Persie.

Press Association Sport understands United failed to meet the Gunners' valuation of Van Persie, with Manchester City and Juventus having also fallen short.

Ferguson told MUTV: "Obviously Arsenal have given out the fact that we've made a bid for him. There are other clubs interested in the player. We've shown an interest and that's where we're at at the moment."
