London, Aug 19 (ANI): Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is planning to quit Old Trafford in two years, but after building his last great team around key striker Wayne Rooney.
Alex will only be manager for a couple more years so it was time the owners gave him what he wanted. That's Van Persie, the Daily Mail quoted a source, as saying.
Ferguson, 70, took personal control of the Van Persie signing and called Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger directly to ensure his final chapter at Old Trafford is successful, after losing the Premier League title to Roberto Mancini's Manchester City on the final day of the season in May.
The United manager, who might enter the market again to land 17 million pound Leighton Baines from Everton, claimed that the Glazer family would back him again, if he makes a formal bid for England left-back, before the end of the transfer window on August 31.
There is only one position in particular we are looking at. We've splashed out quite a bit of money this summer but I'm sure if I went to the Glazers, they'd say yes, Ferguson said. (ANI)
