Italian giants plot Manchester United raid

AC Milan and Juventus are considering end of season moves for Manchester United striker Robin van Persie, according to reports from A Bola.

The Dutch superstar is rumoured to have grown unsettled at Old Trafford recently following David Moyes introduction as manager.

Speculation has suggested that the pair have a less than healthy working relationship, and that the ex-Arsenal man is annoyed that it was not made clear to him that Sir Alex Ferguson – a major factor in his decision to join the Red Devils – was se to retire just one season into his spell at the club.

Although claims of rifts and a desire to move have been denied publically, Juve and Milan are keen to take advantage of the possible unrest with summer raids.

The 30-year-old may well be open to an exit despite having only signed for the Premier League champions in 2012 if they miss out on Champions League qualification.

Although Milan, unlike the Old Lady, are doubtful to qualify for European football’s top tournament, the chance to work under former international colleague Clarence Seedorf at the San Siro may be tempting.

Arsenal have also been credited with in interest in re-signing RVP, but it’s unlikely that United will be willing to do business with their rivals.

Moyes could also consider selling as he plots to rebuild his inherited squad.
