Ferguson admits bid for Van Persie

Van Persie to Man Utd?

Manchester United are trying to sign Dutch international striker Robin van Persie from Premier League rivals Arsenal, said manager Sir Alex Ferguson.

“We have made a bid,” Ferguson told his club’s website. “We’re trying our best but there’s no progress at this moment in time.

“We’re not getting any breakthrough with Arsenal. I don’t know what their thoughts are because they’re not giving anything away.”

Van Persie announced in July that he would not be extending his contract with the Londoners because he was unhappy with the direction they were taking. However Arsene Wenger has spent almost 40m this summer.

The 29-year-old, who has one year remaining on his contract, has also been linked with Juventus and Manchester City.
