RVP is a Red!

RVP is a Red!

All that uncertainty, and those muddy waters, was washed away last night.

The television news stations broke the news that Manchester United would be signing, as Sir Alex predicted several weeks ago, the Dutch striker Robin Van Persie

Van Persie is due to undertake a medical this morning after agreeing a deal that will see him pocket a reported £200,000 a week for the next four years.

This morning the tabloid press revealed, also, that Van Persie agreed to a move to Old Trafford after Sir Alex confirmed that he would be forming a striking partnership with Wayne Rooney.

Reports also indicate that the initial fee will be £15 million, rising to £22 million and possibly further increasing to £24 million with further add-ons.

The signing clearly signals our intent to wrestle our title back from our noisy-neighbours and as the new season approaches, those expectation levels are now rapidly rising!

"RvP is a Red" - you know who The Reds are, yeah? But if that's not what you meant, you do know he was a "red" last season too, yeah?

The term reds can be used to denote any team who's 1st strip is red it's quite common the same with blues. The city you live in tends to lend itself to which team is being insinuated. Hence live in Manchester Red=United Blue=City but live in Liverpool and they stand for completely different teams. A Mancunian would not call Liverpool Reds and a Liverpudlian would not classify Man City as blues. Just thought I'd clear that up for you rojo.

Money-wise no it's not a good deal at all, no doubt the deal will certainly rise to the 24 mil mark however the initial 15 mil fee isn't too bad. Football-wise we haven't strengthened where we needed it the most all the same we've just siogned the best striker in the world last season in my eyes who, even though we're strong in the striking department, will still improve us massively.
