Van Persie wants same money as Rooney

Wantaway Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has stated he wants the same wage as star striker Wayne Rooney, if he is to join the England forward at Old Trafford, according to the Express.

Van Persie has indicated that United is his favoured destination as he seeks some silverware, following a seven-year drought at the Emirates Stadium.

However, the two clubs appear a long way apart in terms of transfer fee, as Arsene Wenger is determined to not let the Dutchman leave for less than £30m, while United are only willing to pay around half that.

Van Persie is one of Europe’s hottest properties after netting 30 league goals last season, as he almost single-handedly secured Arsenal Champions League football next term.
