Former Manchester United and Arsenal striker Robin van Persie is a top transfer target for Brazilian outfit Sao Paulo, according to The Sun.

van Persie wrote his name into Premier League folklore during his ten-year stint in England. The Dutchman made 280 appearances in England’s top tier, finding the back of the net on 144 occasions.
