There is a fair amount of shock on the faces of Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that Robin van Persie is leaving the club after being forced to train alone.
The forward was reportedly initially reluctant to leave Manchester United, but after manager Louis van Gaal told him to train alone, he realised his time was up and decided to accept a move to Fenerbahce.
Now as one of our punters notes over a beer and burger by the pool table, we had thought that Van Gaal might even make RVP the United skipper when he joined the club, but a loss of form and an indifferent season have seen him pushed out the back door for a nominal fee.
Manchester United fans. Was selling RVP the best thing to do in the circumstances? Who would you like to see come in to replace him? Let us know your thoughts below.
