Manchester United boss considers Van Persie sale

Manchester United manager David Moyes is concerned about the attitude of star striker Robin van Persie - and doubts whether the Dutchman can still be part of his long-term plans, according to the Daily Star.

Moyes has reportedly told friends and colleagues that he is worried about Van Persie’s contribution to the squad and input around the camp.

Rumours have been rife all season that the 30-year-old is unhappy at Old Trafford after becoming increasingly disillusioned with the training methods and tactics of Sir Alex Ferguson’s successor.

While recent reports have claimed that the Netherlands international is even open to the idea of rejoining Arsenal this summer.

Although United chiefs have insisted that Van Persie will not be sold at the end of the season; ultimately the final decision will rest with Moyes, who plans to revamp his squad before the start of the 2014/15 campaign.

Despite scoring 14 games in 20 appearances this season, concerns have been raised about Van Persie’s negative body language and a lack of effort during matches.

And unless he sees an improvement between now and the end of the season, Moyes will be tempted to cash in on the unhappy star, who arrived at Old Trafford in 2012 for £24m.

Should Moyes sell Van Persie this summer? Or should Manchester United keep Van Persie and sack Moyes?
