The Dutchman’s future at the club has been called into question as Louis van Gaal looks to strengthen his attacking options ahead of the new season and with the signing of Memphis Depay it would appear that van Persie could find it tough to nail down a regular first team place should be stay at the club.
Lekhwiya are now managed by former Swansea City boss Michael Laudrup and he is ready to offer van Persie a three-year deal worth £18million to bring his tenure in Manchester to an end.
The 31-year-old hasn’t been at his best during the season but has still managed to score 10 goals in 27 league appearances despite missing almost two months of the campaign after picking up an ankle injury in the 2-1 defeat at the Liberty Stadium back in February.
van Persie’s current deal with the Red Devils expires at the end of next season and he could decide to stay and fight for his place next year.
