The Dutch striker, voted the league's player of the year last season, will travel to Manchester on Thursday to discuss personal terms and complete a medical ahead of the proposed move to Old Trafford. No financial details were immediately available from the clubs...but reports said United would pay Arsenal 24 million pounds for Van Persie, who is poised to sign a four-year contract with his new club.

The 29-year-old, who had also attracted interest from the Premier League champions Manchester City and Juventus, said last month he would not extend his contract at Arsenal. He had one year left on his deal after eight years with the club. Van Persie scored 37 goals last season as Arsenal finished third in the league and reached the last 16 of the Champions League.
