Holland boss Louis van Gaal has hinted that Robin van Persie may be struggling to enjoy life at Manchester United, by stating that the Dutchman enjoys playing internationally more than he does for the Red Devils.

The Metro reports that Van Gaal, who shares close relationship with Van Persie, believes that the United forward is more comfortable playing alongside his compatriots in the current climate, following reports that he has become disillusioned with life at Old Trafford.

So far this season the 30-year-old has had to endure a string of injury woes which have compiled his team’s poor fortunes this term. Rumours of a summer move back to Arsenal have recently surfaced and Van Gaal’s comments do little to reject the notion.

“I think he should be great in the tournament because he loves to play in the Dutch squad,” said Van Gaal, who is currently preparing for Holland’s World Cup campaign in Brazil.

“The football from Man United now is for him maybe difficult but then he wishes to show his techniques. Techniques in the Dutch team for him is higher.

“He has shown that all the qualification matches more than ever because he’s our top scorer and I hope he can continue this.”

David Moyes will undoubtedly want to keep hold of Van Persie this summer, but reports linking him with a move for Paris Saint-Germain striker Edinson Cavani imply that he may be preparing for the Dutch star’s exit.
