Manchester United were locked in talks with Arsenal on Tuesday night over what they hope will be a deal-clinching improved offer for Robin van Persie.

Sportsmail exclusively revealed how the Gunners were expecting a new bid, with sources claiming the move could be sealed by Saturday’s big-kick off.

And United took a significant step towards securing the deal by re-opening discussions with the North London club. Their improved offer, likely to be close to Arsenal’s minimum £20m asking price, is expected to be submitted in the next 48 hours.

United players themselves are becoming increasingly confident that Van Persie will be joining them in the near future.

Van Persie is currently away on international duty with Holland and their new boss Louis van Gaal has told the striker that he would be happy to advise him on his future.

‘I think the player always has to decide for himself. When he wants he can ask me for advice but then I’ll speak to him, not to you,’ he said.

Asked if it was important that Van Persie’s future be resolved in time for next month’s World Cup qualifiers against Turkey and Hugary, Van Gaal added: ‘Yes, of course. But it’s for the English clubs, and Arsenal of course, to decide.’
