Arsenal set to hold 'serious talks' with Man U over Van Persie
United and Italian giants Juventus have yet to improve offers of 15 million pounds, but Van Persie was jeered by his own fans in Sunday's win over Cologne in Germany, and is now desperate for a move to be completed.
Arsenal was demanding 25 million pounds for the Dutch striker, who has just one year left on his contract, but the club will now settle for less rather than have a player on their books who does not want to be there and could become a hate figure for the fans. (ANI)
