OBVIOUSLY Robin Van Persie wanted to look good before signing for Manchester United, so much so that he stopped by at his favourite Potters Bar hair salon for a trim.

Dutchman RVP, 29, can be seen sporting his smart new crop, sitting next to a beaming United boss Sir Alex Ferguson putting pen to paper on his new four-year contract, in a photo released by the club.

The hairdo was done at Kaos Hair Designers, in Darkes Lane, yesterday (Thursday) before continuing his journey north.

The forward’s £1.4m home in nearby Goffs Oak is close to be being sold, as the Welwyn Hatfield Times revealed yesterday.
