Dutchman is unhappy with life in the north west. 

Serie A champions Juventus are interested in signing unsettled Manchester United front man Robin van Persie at the end of the season, according to reports in the Daily Express.

The experienced Netherlands international may have only been at Old Trafford since August 2012, when he moved to the north west from arch-rivals Arsenal in a deal worth £24m, however, it is already believed that the 30-year has become disillusioned with life at the Theatre of Dreams under new Red Devils head coach David Moyes.

And as a result, Van Persie is said to be seeking a move away from the Premier League champions come the end of the campaign, with the likes of Juve, Chelsea and AS Monaco all currently lining up to sign the striker.

However, the Old Lady of Italian Football’s hopes of being able to lure the Dutchman to Turin next season are slender though, especially given that Van Persie is currently earning a whopping £250,000 per week at United, while the Serie A giants are only able to offer the player a deal worth £150,000 per week.

All of which may open the door for the Blues and Monaco to go head to head for RVP this summer.
