The Red Devils do not need to bolster an attack that already features Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck with the Arsenal star according to our poll results
The Gunners skipper has expressed his desire to leave the Emirates Stadium this summer, with champions Manchester City and Italian giants Juventus also reportedly keen.
But with Ferguson eager to wrestle the Premier League crown back from their neighbours, he has identified Van Persie as the man to fire United back to the summit of English football.
The Old Trafford side were criticised for their lack of depth in midfield last term, which saw 37-year-old Paul Scholes plucked out of retirement and Japanese midfielder Shinji Kagawa brought in from Borussia Dortmund this summer.
But with Wayne Rooney, Javier Hernandez and Danny Welbeck already at United, 52.63 per cent of voters in our poll believe Ferguson already has enough firepower at his disposal.
A large minority of 47.37% still felt that the considerable fee needed to lure Van Persie away from the Emirates would still represent money well spent, however.
