Though David Moyes has been quick to refute such speculation there is no denying that Man United have struggled this season and Van Persie himself has had injury concerns, though these have not prevented the former Arsenal man scoring 10 goals in 15 appearances in all competitions.

With Lionel Messi out injured Gerardo Martino has targeted Van Persie, who he may feel is a more adept central striking option than in-form Chilean Alexis Sanchez.

Indeed with Messi fully fit the Nou Camp boss may feel that the chance to field a front three including the Argentine, young Brazilian Neymar and Van Persie as too good an opportunity to pass up.

One would imagine Man United would fight off any interest in Van Persie, who netted 30 goals in his debut season.
