Robin van Persie asked about best friend at Manchester United

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie comments on how the new signings have settled in at Old Trafford.

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has said that all the players in the team get on well with each other.

The Netherlands international has been at United since the summer of 2012 when he joined from Premier League rivals Arsenal for a reported transfer fee of £24 million.

United have made a number of changes to the squad in the summer transfer window, signing the likes of Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Angel di Maria, Daley Blind and Radamel Falcao.

The Red Devils have also let go of a whole host of players, including Alexander Buttner, Danny Welbeck, Patrice Evra, Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic.

Van Persie has said that the summer arrivals have settled in well at Old Trafford, but remained coy on who his best friend at United is.

‘It’s hard to pick one because I get on well with all the guys’, the 31-year-old told Inside United when asked who his best friend at United is.

‘All the new guys have settled in really well, which shows everything about the way we are as a team. Everyone gets on really well with each other’.

United did not have the best of starts to the 2014-15 Premier League campaign under new manager Louis van Gaal, but they seem to have recovered now.

Heading into this weekend’s round of matches in the Premier League, the Manchester outfit find themselves fourth in the table with 11 points from seven matches, eight points behind leaders Chelsea.
