Italian giants Juventus and AC Milan are monitoring Manchester United forward Robin van Persie, reports ABOLA

The Dutch striker is reportedly unhappy at Old Trafford and could look for a summer switch away from the Theatre of Dreams. 

The 30-year-old, who only joined the Red Devils in the summer of 2012, has also been linked with a move to his former club Arsenal in recent weeks.

However, if Arsenal do go ahead and make a move for the striker in the next window, they may now have to battle Italian giants Milan and Juventus for his signature. 

The duo appear to be closely monitoring Van Persie's situation at Manchester United and could try and tempt the Dutch star to the Serie A. 

Van Persie is set for a return to the Emirates tonight, as Arsenal host Manchester United in a crunch game in the Premier League and both sides will be desperate to secure all three points in north London for different reasons.

Arsenal will go back to the top of the league with a victory, whilst Manchester United can't afford to slip further behind their rivals in the race to secure Champions League qualification. Van Persie will be hoping to score for the fourth consecutive league game against Arsenal tonight.
