Manchester United are set to end rumours over Robin van Persie’s future, by offering the Dutch star a new deal which will run for two years.

That’s according to the Daily Star, who claim that Louis van Gaal remains ready to place his faith in the 31-year-old despite the fact that he hasn’t looked at the races this term.

Following United’s last campaign, wherein Van Persie saw his season ravaged by injury, the ex-Arsenal star has failed to recreate the form that saw him lead Sir Alex Ferguson’s side to their last Premier League title in 2013.

Van Persie's future

As such speculation has insisted that the forward could be set for an Old Trafford departure, a notion made all the more alarming for supporters given the fact that his current contract expires at the end of next season.

Turkish giants Galatasaray and Fenerbahce were both said to be interested in acquiring his signature, but now it seems Van Gaal wants to rule out the possibility of a Van Persie exit.


Potential pitfalls

A potential stumbling block in United’s offer could be that they’re believed to want the player to take a pay cut on his £250,000-a-week wages, as Van Persie may be of the opinion that he could earn more if he does indeed go elsewhere.

The deal could also hinge on whether or not loan move of Radamel Falcao becomes a permanent one, with the Colombia international increasing the amount of competition for game-time.
