Van Persie: Di Maria & Falcao are world class

The Red Devils spent around £150 million to recruit Angel Di Maria, Radamel Falcao, Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind this summer

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie insists he can’t wait to play alongside the club’s expensive new arrivals.

United splashed out around £150 million during the transfer window, breaking the British record to sign Angel di Maria from Real Madrid, while Luke Shaw, Ander Herrera, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind were also acquired.

A frantic end to the transfer window also saw United sign Colombian star Radamel Falcao on a lucrative one-year loan from French side Monaco.

Such was the flurry of arrivals that only Di Maria and Herrera made their Premier League debuts before the international break, with Shaw not yet fully fit and Rojo unable to obtain a valid UK work permit in time.

But the likes of Falcao, Rojo and Blind are expected to make their debuts at Old Trafford against QPR on Sunday and Van Persie says he is relishing the opportunity to work alongside United’s new signings.

“I can’t wait to go and train and play with the world-class players we have signed – wow,” the Netherlands international told reporters.

“That feeling, that we are going to perform well has only got stronger after the buying of players over the last weeks. I find it very exciting, the arrival of all those new players.

“For me personally, it’s brilliant to go and play with some of the best players in the world. It’s great that I can go and train and play with them every day.”
