Van Persie junior, Shaqueel, is currently training with both the Red Devils and the Blues, although as yet the seven-year-old has still to decide just which of the two Manchester clubs he will end up playing for.

And now his dad and Netherlands international striker Robin says the youngster will have a tough choice to make imminently over the two Premier League giants, just as the 30-year-old also did when leaving Arsenal two years ago.

“He shares my passion of being involved with loads of sports. His timing is incredible,” said Robin van Persie.

“He’s very competitive. He plays for his local team with his friends and he got scouted.

“Now he’s playing for both Manchester United and for City up until an age where, maybe in a year or so, he has to make a decision about where he wants to play.

“He’s doing really well at school as well, so it is a perfect combination. Better than me.

“I always used to tell him that Daddy was really good at school as well. When he’s about 16 or 17 I will tell him the real story but not for now.”
