The 30 year old is said to be unhappy with life under David Moyes and the possibility of an Old Trafford exit will increase significantly if Man United fail to secure a Champions League berth for next season.
Former club Arsenal are also said to be keen on re-signing their former captain though one imagines that if Man United were to sell they would not elect to sell to a domestic rival, and then there’s the small matter of the Emirates Stadium faithful not likely to have forgiven their one-time hero leaving to join their arch-rivals back in the summer of 2012.
AC Milan are also unlikely to have secured Champions League football for next season but the chance to work with his former national team colleague, Clarence Seedorf, at the San Siro may be a factor that works in the Serie A side’s favour.
Juventus brought in Carlos Tevez and Fernando Llorente last summer and both players have been in excellent form for much of the current campaign so Antonio Conte’s need for fresh striking options is certainly less than that of their Serie A rivals.
Robin Van Persie scored 30 goals in all competitions in his debut season at Man United and even though the prolific marksman has missed a chunk of the current campaign through injury the Dutch international has still racked up 13 goals in 19 appearances.
