Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick has hailed the impending arrival of Robin van Persie at Old Trafford as a "massive boost" for the club.
Van Persie is expected to make the switch from Arsenal to United in the next 24 hours after the two clubs agreed a fee for the 29-year-old.
Carrick heard the news after making his England comeback in the friendly international with Italy, and said: "Someone mentioned in the dressing room about Van Persie and if it goes through, it will be brilliant."
