The Italian giants are keen to bring in new additions up front this summer, with van Persie certainly looking an upgrade on Fernando Llorente in that part of the pitch.

Still, the Netherlands international has endured a frustrating couple of years at Old Trafford, scoring just ten times this season and also struggling with niggling injuries this year and last.

This could mean Louis van Gaal is ready to cash in on the 31-year-old while he can, with Serie A looking the likeliest destination for the former Arsenal captain.

The Sun claims Juve are leading the chase for van Persie’s signature, while reports elsewhere link United with big-name replacement signings such as Karim Benzema and Gonzalo Higuain to fill that void up front.
