Cantona was taken to United from Leeds in 1992 and played a key role in the success of the team under Sir Alex Ferguson before retiring in 1997, while Van Persie joined from Arsenal in 2012 and won a league title in his first season at the club.
Reports in Italy and England suggest United are ready to hijack any Manchester City move for Sanchez.
United's official response to that news has been ambiguous though.
Sanchez's future at the Emirates Stadium is the subject of speculation and considering that his current deal with the Gunners will expire at the end of the season, they will either have to sell him this month or else they could risk losing him for free at the end of the season. I think if United were going to buy him, £25million would be an absolute snip.

"I like to be a bit vague and use my experience to not talk about things I cannot back up".
Gilbert Collard annonce fièrement sur Twitter avoir été mis en examen

A huge talent coming in off the left wing, Malcom is improving at a rapid pace in France and could even be a late call up to the Brazil World Cup squad.
"Nothing is really concrete at the moment".
"I don't question his passion".
Within days of that meeting, however, he had signed for Paris Saint-Germain, leaving City standing at the altar.
Asked whether Arsenal would encourage a bidding war between the Manchester clubs, Wenger added: "It is always beneficial to the club who can take advantage". United's interest, genuine or otherwise, is not said to have caused any panic.
