Robin van Persie could make a move to Ligue 1 if Manchester United can’t qualify for the Champions League this season, according to reports in France.

French newspaper Le 10 Sport speculates that United’s star forward, who has been heavily tipped to leave Old Trafford in the summer, could jump ship if United don’t finish in the top four, with both Monaco and Paris Saint-Germain said to be retaining a keen interest.

Persistent rumours of dressing room unrest, coupled with the added pressure of a miserable season for the Red Devils, have meant that stories predicting Van Persie’s departure have never been far from the headlines. Arsenal have repeatedly been linked with a shock swoop for their former captain, whereas the likes of Barcelona have also been mentioned.

However the Dutch international will know that he can guarantee himself a lucrative deal if he opts for a move to France, where mega-rich Monaco and PSG will likely enter a financial battle to entice him to their respective clubs.

As for the possibility of Van Persie leaving Manchester, it’s looking increasingly likely that his club won’t be competing in the Champions League this season. They currently sit sixth in the Premier League, nine points away from fourth place Manchester City.
