In the summer of 2012, Manchester United needed a big window to steal the title back off their noisy neighbours Manchester City, and that’s exactly what they got.
After a drawn-out saga between Van Persie and Arsenal, he finally got his way by being allowed to leave, and controversially joined United for around £24million.
The Dutch striker had scored 37 goals for Arsenal in the previous season, and proved to be crucial, scoring 26 league goals in his first campaign at Old Trafford as United won their 20th title, which also saw him score against his former employers twice.
United strolled to the title, ending the season 11 points clear of City, and Van Persie was awarded the golden boot and a place in the team of the season.
Four other players joined the club alongside Van Persie in 2012, but none were as successful as he was. Here’s how they got on.
