Manchester United Boss Ponders Offloading Robin van Persie This Summer Due To Striker’s Poor Attitude

Dutchman only arrived at the champions in 2012 from Arsenal for £24m.

New Manchester United head coach David Moyes is said to be hugely concerned about both the form and fitness of key fr0nt man Robin van Persie at Old Trafford, according to reports in the Daily Star.

The Netherlands international has so far endured an off-colour campaign up front at the Theatre of Dreams under the Scot’s management, with Van Persie having appeared to be a shadow of the player he was last time around when his goals helped fire the Red Devils to the title in what was the attacker’s debut campaign in the north west.

In the 2012/13 season, the 30-year-old managed to hit the back of the net on 30 occasions in total in his 48 matches in all competitions under former United boss Sir Alex Ferguson, including 26 strikes in just 38 Premier League outings for the top-flight giants.

However, it has been a different story this time around, with the Dutchman appearing at times disinterested in his work at United, while a number of niggling injuries have also affected his form in attack.

So much so that Van Persie has only netted 14 goals in his 22 matches under Moyes and now the former Everton coach is understood to be considering offloading the star forward this summer.
