Van Persie scored 132 goals in 278 games for Arsenal before he controversially left the club to sign for rivals Manchester United in the summer of 2012. The Red Devils paid around £24m to secure his transfer from the Gunners. In total, Van Persie scored 272 goals in 593 games over the course of his career.

RVP went in search of trophies at Manchester United and he was able to fire the team to the Premier League title in his first season at the club. The ex-Dutch national team star scored 26 goals for Manchester United on the way to winning the Premier League title. Manchester United have not won any other league title since then. It was also the last league title won by legendary manager Sir Alex Ferguson who retired in 2013. Ferguson won the league title in his last season thanks in part to Van Persie.
