Fergie can drive a Van

ALEX FERGUSON is in London today amid claims he is still pursuing Arsenal striker Robin van Persie. Van Persie gets some City Ade MAN CITY hope to land Robin van Persie by selling Manu Adebayor to Spurs for £5million Barca ‘n PSG join RVP chaseArsenal feel RVP wants City deal The Manchester United boss will be among the guests at the Labour Party Sports Dinner this evening at Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium. And sources insist Fergie remains in the hunt for Van Persie after the Dutchman refused to extend his deal with the Gunners. United’s rivals Manchester City are determined to step up their interest in last season’s double player of the year once they have finalised the £6million sale of Emmanuel Adebayor to Spurs. Van Persie, however, is believed to be concerned about boss Roberto Mancini’s policy of rotating his strikers and possibly being a sub. United do not want to be sucked into a tapping-up row like City and are reluctant to pay £30m for a 29-year-old. But Fergie would love to pair him with Wayne Rooney to form a formidable partnership as he bids to take the title back to Old Trafford. Whatever he decides, Van Persie wants his future to be sorted out before Arsenal leave for their Asia tour, which kicks off with a match against a Malaysia XI on July 24. The Gunners are due to face City in Beijing on July 27. United fly out to South Africa on Monday at the start of their own pre-season schedule — which also includes a stop in Shanghai, China.
