Robin van Persie sparked an intense transfer saga when he decided to leave Arsenal. He sparked an even greater outrage when he decided to switch allegiance to Manchester United – Arsenal’s greatest rivals for Premier League glory.

The Dutchman was 29 when he moved to Old Trafford, fetching a £22m price. However, if anyone had expected Arsenal to be the winners in the deal given that he was approaching his 30s, it was exactly the opposite.
