Signing Van Persie will inspire Manchester United to the Premier League title, say readers

The Netherlands international enjoyed his most successful top flight season last term, and our poll results show that voters are convinced he will fire the Red Devils to glory
Robin van Persie's move to Manchester United has convinced more than half of readers voting in our poll that the Red Devils will take the Premier League title this season.

The 29-year-old racked up 30 league goals for Arsenal last season, and his £24 million move to Old Trafford has led to comparisons with the Manchester United front line of 1999 which helped Sir Alex Ferguson's side win the treble.

The summer's big move has convinced a whopping 50.07% of voters that he is the man to help reclaim the title from rivals Manchester City.

However, 25.07% of readers are not so certain, believing that the Red Devils are still lacking something and the title will go elsewhere.

Meanwhile, 24.86% of voters think the former Gunners man's signing is not the only influential factor in the title race, and everything is very much still up for grabs.

The majority, though, are backing a 20th Premier League title for Sir Alex's men, with United kicking off their campaign away to Everton on Monday night.
