Arguably the Allianz Arena side’s need is greater than Barcelona’s as Guardiola can only really call upon Mario Mandzukic in relation to top quality central striking options, his armoury significantly reduced by the sale of Mario Gomez to Fiorentina over the summer.
This source claims that Man United would listen to offers of around £37m, a fee Bayern Munich may be ready to fork out though a bid is perhaps more likely next summer given that Van Persie is cup tied in terms of Champions League involvement.
Some sources claim that Van Persie may have already put in a transfer request though this has been denied by the Premier League side.
Regardless of his relationship with David Moyes the lethal finisher has still managed to net 10 goals in 15 appearances in all competitions and managed 30 in his debut season at the club and is rightly considered one of the most consistent goal-scorers in European football.
