Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs believes that the signing of Robin van Persie send a message to their rivals.

Manchester United stalwart Ryan Giggs has expressed his belief that the signing of Robin van Persie is a strong statement of intent by the club.

Van Persie joined the Old Trafford outfit from rivals Arsenal for £24m last week.

Giggs is happy with the acquisition, and also praised Van Persie's desire to join the club.

"It [the Van Persie signing] sends out a big message. And it's great when a player comes out and says he wants to come to the club as well," said the 38-year-old.

"I'm biased but players should want to come to United because you're always guaranteed to be up there challenging for trophies, there's a great team spirit, top facilities and you get to play for a great manager.

"There are so many plus points."

United's next match comes against Fulham on Saturday.
