Fans’ view: Should Robin van Persie leave Manchester United in the summer?

by Ben Topliss

The future of Robin van Persie at Manchester United became a topic of discussion on Tuesday following a report from the Mirror which suggested the Dutchman will be sold by Louis van Gaal in the summer.

Van Gaal is said to be unconvinced by van Persie following a number of sub-par performances over the course of the campaign.

It would be a tough one to take for fans given his fantastic, title-winning form during Sir Alex Ferguson’s final season in charge.

On the other hand, his displays this term have been far less impressive and the 31-year-old looks to be on the decline. We asked our Twitter followers if they think van Persie should be sold by United in the summer:

Ultimately, it depends on who van Gaal can bring to the club as a replacement for him but fans are divided when it comes to whether or not they want van Persie to leave.

If United can sign a player such as Paulo Dybala or Edinson Cavani, then van Persie’s days at the club may well be numbered. If they fail to land their targets, he will be needed as cover as it is more than likely that United will let Javier Hernandez and Radamel Falcao go in the summer.
