Manchester United tipped to keep key star away from Arsenal move

Published Add your comment

Manchester United have been made favourites by PaddyPower to keep Robin van Persie at the club for next season.

Only a month ago Arsenal had the odds heavily on their side with regards to securing the Dutchman’s future, but recent events seem to have changed the bookmakers stance. PaddyPower now have the reigning Premier League champions at 3/1 to have Van Persie on their books after the summer transfer window, whereas his old club come in at 8/1.

This is on the back of rumours which speculated that the 30-year-old was primed for a return to the Emirates after what has been a terrible campaign. However reports of disharmony between the player and United seem to have been put in the past now that David Moyes has been giving his marching orders, and the idea of Louis van Gaal taking over is said to have boosted Van Persie’s position.

With Arsene Wenger desperate to bring in a top class striker, and United still being persistently linked with a move for Paris Saint-Germain’s Edinson Cavani, anything could yet happen once clubs are able to do business again. It must be said though that the general consensus has switched in recent times, and it now looks as though Van Persie will have at least one more year under the lights at Old Trafford.
