Robin van Persie was seen alongside Louis van Gaal again this weekend as speculation persists that the Netherlands manager is being lined-up to replace David Moyes at Manchester United at the end of the season.

Van Gaal, it was claimed at the weekend, has met with representatives of Manchester United, with a member of the Glazer family among them, to discuss the potential of becoming the club’s next manager. Manchester United, of course, have denied this.

Van Persie, meanwhile, enjoys an excellent relationship with Van Gaal and has reportedly urged his international coach to hold fire on committing to another job post-World Cup just in case an opportunity at Old Trafford should arrive.

The Manchester United striker would have been able to get in the ear of Van Gaal on Sunday, as the two were pictured alongside each other for the Eredivisie clash between PSV and Feyenoord. Van Persie and Van Gaal were with Kevin Strootman at the Philips Stadion as Feyenoord won 2-0.

Van Persie, who has been back in the Netherlands recuperating from injury, had previously been seen with Van Gaal watching Vitesse against Ajax a week before. The 30-year-old has been out of action since sustaining a knee injury during the Manchester United defeat of Olympiacos in the Champions League.
