How much is Robin Van Persie’s weight in gold to Manchester United at current UK prices?

Why Manchester United are reliant on Robin van Persie | The Sun |Sport|Football. gold_1d_k_GBP “ROBIN VAN PERSIE is worth his weight in gold as Manchester United continue their chase for silverware.” Saw this in the Sun and it got me thinking, we sometimes say someone is worth their weight in gold but how is that actually worth?

A quick Google shows that RVP’s weight is around the 71 kg mark. So, multiplying that by the current price of gold in the UK means that Robin Van Persie is worth £2,345,556. Bearing in mind he was bought for about £24 million, I’d say he’s worth over ten times his weight in gold!
