There are some raised eyebrows coming from Manchester United fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern as Metro seem to think that yet another club is considering a summer bid for Robin van Persie.
The former Arsenal skipper is looking increasingly likely to leave United this summer with Louis van Gaal considering his forward options.
With the Dutchman reportedly willing to sanction a bid for another world class star this summer, it is likely his fellow compatriot will be sacrificed and we don’t blame van Gaal given the shaky form produced by van Persie so far this campaign.
Inter Milan are now reportedly keen on landing van Persie and with new manager Roberto Mancini a known fan of the forward after trying to sign him during his time at Manchester City, we can fully believe the rumours.
Quite if van Persie will be willing to join a club who may not be in the Champions League remains to be seen however and as our landlord wisely notes, this one could take until the end of next summer to come to fruition.
Manchester United fans. Is van Persie’s time at Old Trafford up? Is he suffering from a World Cup hangover? Let us know your thoughts below.
