why would they want him.

ferguson himself had a tough time leaving out berbatov out of the side for much of last season who was golden boot winner the season prior to last one.

even if MUFC got van persie, that would mean chicharito and wellback will get even less game time.

he is a good player but i think MUFC can do without him.

I'll just leave this here,

"United have an upcoming market float in New York and have to be seen and heard making the right noises.

What Ferguson has done so far re Van Persie is akin to them bidding £10m for Messi. Would he take Messi, pretty sure he would!

Would Barcelona accept £10m, would Messi accept £100k a week?

Makes for good headlines and keeps the pot boiling. A win win.

But he's currently chancing his arm on buying a 50p raffle ticket when he knows he might have to buy a few more raffles tickets to get even close."
