Robin Van Persie's future remains uncertain

Robin Van Persie may be the odd man out at Manchester United this summer as David Moyes plans a root and branch overhaul of the squad.

The United boss will get £200m to spend at the end of the season as the club's board seek improved results following a disappointing first season.

And Van Persie's future at the club remains uncertain despite public assurances to the contrary. The Daily Mail reports that United may dispense with the Dutchman this summer if the club's recent good form continues.

Van Persie has played a massive role in helping United do just that, scoring a hat-trick to reverse a 2-0 Champions League tie and send the club into the last eight.

But, following an impressive display without Van Persie on Saturday evening, Moyes is starting to think the club's long-term future could revolve around a Wayne Rooney, Shinji Kagawa, Juan Mata axis.

The trio linked up well against West Ham as United ran out comfortable 2-0 victors at Upton Park. And the report claims should United continue in the same vein during the run-in, Moyes could let Van Persie go to the highest bidder. 

United will be without the former-Gunners captain for the next four-to-six weeks after he picked up an injury in the closing stages of the Olympiakos Champions League match.

The 30-year-old forward has been linked with a return to Arsenal, but AC Milan may be a more likely destination.

The Italian giants are thought to be considering a financial package to lure the Dutch international to the San Siro, although it's doubtful whether they could match his £230,000-a-week wages.
