Van Persie set to make Man Utd debut against Everton
Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is confident Robin van Persie will make his debut for the club against Everton on Monday.
Van Persie is set to undergo a medical in Manchester later this afternoon.
"He is on his way up from London for a medical later this afternoon," said the Red Devils manager.
"We hope that goes according to plan. His agent is in discussions with (United chief executive) David Gill right about now.
"We hope all the things will be tied up, although sometimes medicals do take a bit longer. I am sure he will be available for Monday's game."
"They (Wayne Rooney and Robin van Persie) are two fantastic players and it will be great to have both of them," added Ferguson.
"It gives us more strength and more combinations up front.
"In 1999 I had Dwight Yorke, Andy Cole, Teddy Sheringham and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the four best strikers in Europe.
"We are going towards that now with Javier Hernandez, Wayne Rooney, Robin, Danny Welbeck and Shinji Kagawa.
"It is a fantastic collection of players and hopefully I pick the right combinations.
"It is great to have a player of Robin van Persie's qualities to come into the squad. I am very pleased."
