Van Persie urges the club to make two key signings in the summer transfer window

Former Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has urged the club to sign a striker preferably PSG striker Edinson Cavani this summer and a midfield partner for new signing Bruno Fernandes.

Van Persie told SPORTbible:

“Edinson Cavani. I would definitely go for Cavani. He’s very fit, he’s a proven goalscorer, a goal machine, he has proven it at Napoli, PSG and Uruguay. With him, if he starts, he will get you 25 goals a season.

“I’ve watched him play, I’ve played against him, he is like a proper goalscorer. He lives by scoring goals so I’d go for him.”

Van Persie added: “Maybe one midfielder in a playmaker role. Though to be fair I watched Bruno Fernandes against Chelsea and he looks very good to me, very silky.

“But I would add one other one to put next to him, then with one player who stops the opponent attacking, that is what I like to see. I like to play with five attacking, creative minded players.”
