Summer 2012 Transfer Robin van Persie’s First Half-Season For Manchester United Has Been Incredible

It’s been 20 Premier League starts for Robin van Persie since the Dutchman joined Manchester United during the summer transfer window.  The shock move caused some controversial opinions about the arrival of the former Arsenal player at Old Trafford, but all of them were set aside after the first few months of RvP playing for the red devils.

Van Persie’s adaptation to his new club was extremely fast. The partnership with Rooney, of course, is the big factor that makes Manchester United the team with the most goals scored in the Premier League. "We are both 9.5" said the Dutchman about him and Rooney sharing the role of creating and scoring most of United goals. But we all know what  van Persie is. A legitimate goalscorer, and everything else that comes from him is just an additional evidence of a classy top striker.

Even without a squad full of world-class players in every role, van Persie can still be considered the icing on Ferguson’s cake. He was the solution to the red devils problems since the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo – a goal machine who can always be relied upon.

Wesley Sneijder Transfer Rumors And Speculation: Will Serie A Midfielder Man. U, Man. City, Chelsea or Tottenham?

Internazionale’s Wesley Sneijder imminent exit brings, of course, various speculations about a possible transfer to the Premier League. The 28 years old midfielder is no longer sought by top clubs as a few years ago, but despite the rejection, would he fit in the best clubs of the Premier League ? Let us make an analysis on the hypothetical transfer of the player to one of the EPL top-4, Sneijder’s big interest at the moment.

Naturally, the Dutchman does not fit into the English 4-4-2 system. Clubs that keep this tactical formation (such as Tottenham) would have to adjust to the midfielder’s game plan. After all, Sneijder does not have the speed to play as a winger and is not willful in the markup as a traditional box-to-box should be.  Sneijder could be the cherry on the cake of Villas Boas to prove themselves as a strong team to compete for the Premier League title. But for this, the Portuguese coach would need a new way to build the team.
