Robin van Persie completes medical ahead of Manchester United move
Manchester: Robin van Persie has completed a medical at Bridgewater Hospital ahead of an agreed transfer to Manchester United.
The Arsenal captain`s protracted exit from the Emirates Stadium was finally decided to be to the Premier League runners-up on Wednesday and the deal is expected to be confirmed shortly afterward.
The striker will then put pen to paper on a four-year contract worth a hefty £235,000-a-week.
In total, accounting for image rights and salary over the length of the deal, Van Persie is set to earn a mouth-watering £48.9 million, with United already paying Arsenal £24m to secure his services.
Goal.com also understands that Arsenal are on the brink of selling midfielder Alex Song to Barcelona for £15m after a breakthrough in negotiations.
