The Current Bun claims today that Arsenal’s Robin van Persie is a transfer target for Manchester Utd:
“Sir Alex Ferguson is aware the £20million-rated striker is yet to commit to a new contract at The Emirates.
“And the United chief’s interest has intensified after Van Persie admitted prizes mean more to him than money.
“He recently admitted: “In the last four years I’ve won only one prize, the FA Cup, and that is too little. I want more.”

I’ll have a FAIL with fries please. If you want an example of everything that’s wrong with modern football hackery, this story is it. As Arseblogger rightly pointed out, the tabs have a very simple recipe to make this rumours. It’s something as simple like this:
Big player + another big club = bullshit rumour.
Roll on next season.

    van persie hes only 24..is a proven goal scorer provided he stays fit..he can play on the left wing and as a striker..considering he hasnt signed a new contract he can be available for a reasonable fee….so i dont see why its not possible…

    I wouldnt mind letting R.V.P go for 25m , we have to consider that he gets injured way too often and that if they are given that amount or more, he could go and let Arsene do his magic on finding new talents.
