Manchester United striker Robin van Persie’s career may be under threat as the club hope he will undergo a knee operation with the fear that he may never be 100% again otherwise.
In additional revelations from the Daily Mirror, it has emerged that previous manager David Moyes was also ready to sell the Dutchman this summer due to concerns over his future in the game.
Moves for big names such as Edinson Cavani, Toni Kroos and Cesc Fabregas had also been lined up by the Scot, who was sacked from his position as United boss back in April, before Louis van Gaal took the job for this season.
However, van Persie’s willingness to play under van Gaal for the Netherlands at this summer’s World Cup may now be taking its toll, as the player could now be out of action as he needs surgery on his knee to avoid being well below par for the club this season.
The former Arsenal man missed large chunks of last season through injury and has looked somewhat off the pace for United so far this season, with the club generally looking in poor shape at the start of the 2014/15 campaign.
