Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are laughing off this recent rumour after the Mail on Sunday revealed that Robin van Persie is a target for Qatari side Lekhwiya.
The Qatari team are now managed by Michael Laudrup and he is weighing up a move for the Premier League striker.
Lekhwiya are now set to make a move for the Dutch international, as it is believed his future at Old Trafford is uncertain.
The Dutchman could be surplus to requirements next season and could be used to raise funds to strengthen the squad elsewhere.
Red Devil boss Louis van Gaal is set to hold private talks with his fellow countryman next week to decide his future.
At 31, it is possible the former Arsenal hitman could decide to end his career elsewhere, with a big final pay day in Qatar.
