Van Persie signing is a landmark moment for Man Utd

BBC - Sir Alex Ferguson has made an exception to his rule for an exceptional talent. Manchester United's manager has moved away from his zealous investment in the younger market to sign Robin van Persie.

Ferguson's transfer mantra in recent seasons has been "value" - so it is a measure of the size of the statement he and United want to make that he is prepared to pay £24m plus a lavish salary for Arsenal's 29-year-old double footballer of the year.

The story is too old to be commented.
