Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is considering his future at the club, according to reports from

The aforementioned source claims that the Dutchman, who it was revealed yesterday will miss up to four weeks with a thigh injury sustained during the 1-0 Champions League win over Shakhtar Donetsk on Tuesday evening, is unhappy with manager David Moyes' training methods, supposedly believing that they have contributed to his fitness woes. 

Van Persie joined Manchester United from old rivals Arsenal during the summer of 2012 in a controversial deal evidently based around the player's thirst for trophy success.

His first season at Old Trafford proved to be an overwhelming success, with the former Feyenoord star firing the Red Devils to yet another top-flight crown in Sir Alex Ferguson's last season in charge of the club.

Things have been far more difficult this season, however. While Van Persie can still lay claim to a more than respectable tally of seven goals in 11 Premier League games, he has struggled with injury of late as Manchester United have slipped alarmingly into the mid-table abyss under the tutelage of Moyes.

La Liga giants Barcelona were even linked with a shock bid of £37 million for the prolific frontman's talents earlier this week.

Whether Van Persie does intend to leave Manchester United after such a short spell at the club, remains to be seen.

While it seems unlikely that he would do so, the club do seem to be entering a potentially painful transition under Moyes and that could have a massively detrimental impact on their chances.of winning any further silverware in the near future.
