Transfer news: Harry Redknapp has deemed Robin van Persie the key to the title challenge
Former Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp believes that whichever Manchester club signs Arsenal star Robin van Persie will win the Premier League.
The Dutchman is likely to leave the club this month after rejecting a new deal with the Gunners and the Premier League’s top two sides have been fighting it out for the 29-year-old’s signature.
“Whichever Manchester club signs Robin van Persie will win the Premier League,” Redknapp told Betfair.
“Robin was so good last year that I really do see him as thekingmaker in the title battle.
“Him and Wayne Rooney would be as good a pair as you can get, while City would have just about the finest array of attacking talent one club has ever assembled.
“Van Persie is just a fantastic talent who can change a game on his own.
“Think of Spurs’ 5-2 defeat at Arsenal last year, Robin single-handedly turned the game upside-down and he did it time and time again throughout the season.”
