Manchester United are reportedly ready to hand striker Robin van Persie a new two-year contract.
Van Persie has been on the books of United since 2012 when he joined them from Arsenal and was a key figure in the Red Devils’ 2012-13 title-winning campaign.
However, the 31-year-old has struggled with average (or poor) form and injuries since then, but it seems that United have faith in him. Van Persie’s current contract with the Manchester outfit runs out in June 2016.
United fans took to social networking site Twitter to have their say on the report. Below are the best reactions.
A two year contract for #RVP have I just read that correctly. He's got to seriously up his game for me! Not been good enough for 18 months— Stuart Millichip (@stuartmillichip) November 9, 2014
