Arsenal turn down bid for Van Persie from Man U?
and there's more nonsense (like there always is) in regards to this and other transfer gossip
" Contrary to widespread reports that Manchester United has made an official bid for the striker, it is understood that this is not the case and that the Old Trafford club has instead prioritized the signing of Brazilian playmaker Lucas Moura, and is also pursuing Real Madrid star Nuri Sahin "
sure it's on goal.com, but god only knows what to believe anymore before the clubs make official statements. it's like the media covers these rumors harder than they do the in season games and action.
