According to the Metro, Van Persie Jr. wants to be a footballer just like his dad, and is currently training with Manchester City. The Citizens are yet to sign him up to their academy, although they are keen to do so - along with both Arsenal and United.
Van Persie senior, and Shaqueel’s mother, will ultimately have the final say on where the little’un hones his skills over the next few years. His dad, who spent eight years with Arsenal before joining Manchester United in a £24m deal two years ago, faces the dilemma of choosing between his former club and his current employers.
Van Persie was an Arsenal hero, and captained the club in his final season at the Emirates Stadium before stunning the north London outfit by announcing his desire to leave the club in order to win silverware. He did just that in his first season at Old Trafford, but has endured a frustrating injury-hit campaign this term.
There were reports that Van Persie was unhappy with life under David Moyes - there were even rumours that he would be keen on a return to the Gunners - but the Netherlands international is now expected to stay with the Red Devils, and could even be made club captain, with his national team manager Louis van Gaal set to take the reigns at Old Trafford.
