Manchester United aren't more attractive after RVP commitment

Published Add your comment

Robin van Persie's commitment to Manchester United has not made the club more of an attractive proposition for players, according to David Moyes. 

Van Persie released a statement on Thursday insisting that he was happy at the Theatre of Dreams and even wanted to extend his current contract with the club. 

However, the Red Devils manager, speaking ahead of his side's with rivals Liverpool tomorrow, has insisted that the Dutchman's revelations will have no effect on the summer transfer window. 

As reported by Manchester United's official website: "I don’t think Robin saying that makes it any more of an attractive proposition for players," the boss added. "It just tells you that people have tried to find reasons why things haven't gone as well for us.

"A lot were saying that was down to Robin van Persie or the manager but I always said that wasn't the case and hopefully now you have heard it from Robin as well."

Manchester United fans will be hoping the club make a number of signings this summer after a disastrous campaign. 

However, things are looking up for the Red Devils, with both Van Persie and Wayne Rooney having committed their futures to the club in the past few weeks. 

Manchester United and Van Persie's immediate focus will turn to their clash with Brendan Rodgers' side tomorrow and will be desperate to stay in the race for Champions League qualification.
