Van Persie Holland

Manchester United supporters take to social networking site Twitter to have their say on a report claiming that Robin van Persie will be given a new deal.

Manchester United are reportedly ready to hand striker Robin van Persie a new two-year contract.

The Daily Star reported over the weekend that the Premier League outfit are set to open talks with the Netherlands international and ‘reassure’ him about his future.

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.
