London: Angered over the transfer of Robin van Persie to Manchester United, Arsenal fans vented their fury on the striker`s wife.
Van Persie`s wife Bouchra, 28, was blitzed with abusive Twitter messages after the 24 million pound deal.
Van Persie, 29, was yesterday in Manchester undergoing a medical prior to signing a four-year contract that will net him more than 200,000 pounds a week.
While some fans posted videos of them burning their van Persie shirts on YouTube, many directed their fury at Bouchra.
The mum-of-two was branded a gold-digger and threatened by sick supporters blaming her for the switch to their title rivals, The Daily Star reports.
Angelo_156 Tweeted: "I wish death upon you. I hate you, you scumbag. I hope your whole family drops dead.

Hiuyan0806 tweeted: "Tell your hubby that he is the biggest betrayal in Arsenal history at all times. He won`t get away from it.
Three months ago Bouchra said she hoped the footballer would stay in London to avoid disrupting the children`s schooling.
But the abuse horrified many other Arsenal fans who tweeted support for Bouchra.
I`ve always said the person who wins the world championship this year is the person who does the best job on the circuit, but that does not seem the way it is at the moment.
