[PHOTOS] Robin Van Persie’s first training session with Manchester United

You’ll be seeing a lot of Robin van Persie in an Arsenal Manchester United shirt this season, so might as well get used to it now.

Here’s RVP (£24m, high wages, 4 year contract, injury record and all that) taking part in his first training session for Manchester United as the club prepares for their first league match (Everton on Monday). He’s one of the most expensive transfer signings ever made by Manchester United and one of the highest-profile deals done in this Premier League transfer window.


It’s amazing how photos can shape the narrative – here’s RVP getting along nicely with Fergie, Rio, Rooney and not to mention Paul Scholes. If he fits in well with this bunch of players, it will be magic.

The best part of the photos? When RVP meets Nani. Also, poor Darren Fletcher – he looks like he’s lost so much weight in his illness. Props to him for continuing to train and fight to be playing football again.

Here it is, RVP at Man Utd (heaven for DHL, AON, Chevrolet, Nike, etc):
