Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini believes that with the acquisition of Robin van Persie, Manchester United now boast the best strikeforce in world football.

It was confirmed on Friday that Van Persie's move from Arsenal to United was complete, with the Dutchman putting pen to paper on a four-year deal at Old Trafford.

He joins a forward line that already includes Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Javier Hernandez, and which as far as Mancini is concerned, is unparalleled at the moment.

"I think it is the best four strikers in the world," Mancini - who has the considerably potent striking quartet of Sergio Aguero, Carlos Tevez, Mario Balotelli and Edin Dzeko at his own disposal - said.

"Last year our four strikers did better than other strikers, but we need to work harder than last year because this year United, with Van Persie, are better."
