Juventus could be set to renew their interest in Manchester United striker Robin van Persie this summer, FootballDirectNews.com understands.
The Netherlands international is reportedly unsettled at Old Trafford this season due to some disappointing results under the guidance of new manager David Moyes, who took over from Sir Alex Ferguson in the summer.
As rumours grow that van Persie could seek an exit from the club, the likes of Barcelona and Bayern Munich have shown some interest in snapping him up in the next transfer window, and United may find it particularly difficult to persuade him to stay if they do not qualify for the Champions League. Juventus are the latest to show an interest in the 30-year-old, as manager Antonio Conte ponders options to improve his attack for next season.
The Italian giants currently have Pablo Osvaldo on loan from Southampton, but they may be unable to keep him permanently, while the likes of Mirko Vucinic and Fabio Quagliarella are expected to leave at the end of the season. We’ll have to see what happens, but there is a bit of a worry that it’ll be difficult to keep Robin, a United insider explained. “Juventus are interested and they might have a lot to spend if players like (Paul) Pogba leave. “
