Liverpool legend Robbie Fowler believes Robin van Persie could leave Manchester United this summer, reports talkSPORT.
Fowler believes the partnership between Rooney and Van Persie hasn't taken off in recent time and has tipped the Dutchman to depart the Theatre of Dreams in the up coming market.
Manchester United have had a disastrous season and look likely to miss out on Champions League qualification for next season.
The Red Devils were also dumped out of Europe this past week against German giants Bayern Munich and a major overhaul is expected at Manchester United this summer.
And Fowler believes the United boss may look to get rid of Van Persie. Speaking to Hawksbee and Jacobs, the former Liverpool hitman said: “When Rooney and RVP were playing together it was a bit of a mix-match. They weren’t getting results.
“Since RVP has been injured and out of the side, Rooney seems to have upped his game.
“I really rate Rooney and think he could play as a loan striker, he can play with anyone. He can play a multitude of roles.
“It wouldn’t surprise me if Van Persie left in the summer.”
With the likes of Juan Mata and Shinji Kagawa having starred in recent weeks, it remains to be seen as to whether Van Persie stays at the club for next season.
Manchester United fans will certainly be hoping a number of changes are made this summer as they look to forget a troubled first season under Moyes' management.
