The Robin van Persie transfer saga has come to a conclusion, and it is one that has the Dutch striker set for a major move from the Emirates to Old Trafford.

Arsenal announced that they have reached an agreement with Manchester United for the transfer of Van Persie, who has been the subject of transfer rumors for months, including potential moves to United rival Manchester City and Italian champion Juventus. Van Persie is set to arrive in Manchester on Thursday for a physical and to agree to personal terms with the Red Devils.

With the addition of Van Persie, Manchester United now has the top two goal scorers in the Premier League from last season, as he teams with Wayne Rooney to form one of the more frightening forward tandems in the league. The move comes on the heels of United adding Borussia Dortmund attacker Shinji Kagawa and agreeing to a long-term deal with forward Danny Welbeck, fortifying an attacking nucleus that is shaping up to be one of the finest in all of Europe.

What do you think of this development? Does this make Manchester United the favorites in England? In all of Europe?
