Robin van Persie is so desperate to leave Manchester United that he's willing to sacrifice a £10million bonus in order to join Juventus this summer, reports the Sunday Mirror.
The 30-year-old striker has become increasingly disillusioned with life with the Premier League champions, following the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson last summer.
New Red Devils boss David Moyes has frequently insisted that there is no problem between himself and Van Persie, but it's understood that the Dutchman wants out of Old Trafford and has set his sights on a switch to Serie 'A'.
Juventus were credited with an interest in Van Persie when he opted to leave Arsenal in 2012, but the Holland international was persuaded by Ferguson to snub them and join Manchester United.
However, following a season of turmoil under Moyes, the former Gunner is ready to up sticks again, despite the fact he stands to earn a lucrative loyalty bonus by seeing out the remainder of his contract in Manchester.
Moyes has stressed on a number of occasions that the talisman is not for sale this summer, but if Juventus offer a decent return on the £24million Manchester United paid for Van Persie 19 months ago, then their stance might change.
