Transfer news: Steve Bruce would love to see Robin van Persie alongside Wayne Rooney at Manchester United
Hull City manager Steve Bruce would relish the prospect of seeing wantaway Arsenal star Robin van Persie and Manchester United ace Wayne Rooney on the same side.
The Gunners striker has admitted he would not sign a new contract causing him to be linked with moves to the Red Devils, Manchester City and Juventus.
“If he [Ferguson] gets him [Van Persie], it would be a wonderful signing,” Bruce told talkSPORT.
“He’s playing at the peak of his career and, with Manchester City laying down the gauntlet, it’s the next challenge.
“Chelsea have been there and Arsenal have been there against them and now they see City as a big threat and you need people like him to come in to the team to freshen it up. There is no doubt about his quality.
“It would be mouthwatering if you’ve got van Persie and Rooney in the same team. That would be a wonderful combination.
“Van Persie played on his own last year. He virtually played as a lone striker, which would let Wayne just drift into that little position he takes up.”
