Arsenal set to strike 22m deal with Man Utd for RVP

Arsenal are reportedly set to strike a deal with Manchester United for Dutch striker Robin van Persie.

The Sun reports that United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is hoping to complete a 22million deal before the Premier League starts this weekend.

Van Persie is desperate for a move to Old Trafford to be completed.

Arsenal were demanding 25million for the striker, but are now prepared to settle for less.

Van Persie scored 37 goals in all competitions for Arsenal last season.
