Arsene Wenger has admitted he expects departed Arsenal star Robin van Persie to form a deadly strike partnership with Wayne Rooney at Manchester United.
The Dutchman has picked up at Man Utd where he left off at Arsenal, scoring four goals in as many games following his £24million summer switch from the Emirates.
Wenger, who has already admitted he would have preferred to sell Van Persie abroad, admits he is fearful of the 29-year-old’s link up with Wayne Rooney.
“RVP and Wayne Rooney have everything to play together,” he wrote in his column for Eurosport.
“Sometimes, great goalscorers don’t really fit together. But if you analyse the pair’s technical skills on the pitch, it can work.
“It will require some understanding, from the technical and from the personal point of view, but their separate success will increase the links between them.
“If those links exist and if they both score, it will be very, very strong.”
