Robin van Persie is set to depart Manchester United to Eredivisie side Excelsior in the future, Daily star reports.

Van Persie was a summer signing from Arsenal in 2012 and helped United to their 20th league title in his debut campaign.

However last season the Dutchman was hit with niggling injuries as well as bad form, resulting in the Red Devils’ worst ever Premier League finish of seventh.

And it was suggested that the 30-year-old striker could leave the club this summer, however his father, Bob, is adamant his son will remain at Old Trafford before one day making a return to Excelsior, his first club, and end his career.

“When his contract ends in Manchester, he’ll be 33. As long as he is fit enough – and I am sure he will be – he’ll stay in Manchester,” Van Persie Senior told The Blizzard.

“Then, he will go back to Excelsior. Money will never be an issue.

“Robin is hyperactive. He was like that as a kid and will always be like that. He needs football to burn his energy and he will be like that for the rest of his life. So he’s got to look forwards.

“He’ll probably always be loyal to Excelsior, Arsenal and Manchester United. Those clubs are like home.”
