Van Persie’s first game for his new club could be their season opener against Eskişehir Spor and if Altun gets his way, he would like the young United fan to meet the Dutch star.
The local newspaper also spoke Sam, his father and uploader of the video, who said: “"As cruel as it may seem I couldn't resist getting the phone out.
"My wife and I can't wait to show it to him in 10 years time when he can laugh along to it...
"He’s blissfully unaware he’s become an internet sensation,” added the Tooting resident.
"As far as he knows we've shown the video to a few of his friends, so he’s pretty famous in his own back yard."
We are sure Louis would have had a smile on his face when he saw the new signings made by Louis van Gaal yesterday.
