The Dutch ace only moved from London to Old Trafford in 2012, but rumours have been circulating suggesting that he’s unsettled as the club.
Van Persie is said to have a difficult relationship with new manager David Moyes after being left particularly disappointed by Sir Alex Ferguson’s decision to retire at the end of last season.
With United understood to be set to embark on a massive summer of transfer activity, the 30-year-old ace is edging ever closer to the exit door.
It is thought that RVP himself is ready to leave the Red Devils, with a return to Arsenal his favoured option.
The prolific front-man captained the Gunners prior to his exit – since which the club’s supports have voiced their ill-feeling towards him.
Arsene Wenger is known to be in the market for a new striker, but it remains unclear as to whether or not the Emirates Stadium chief will be willing to match his £200,000+-per-week wages, despite his transfer fee set to be substantially lower than the one that took him to United.
