Report: Robin van Persie wants Manchester United stay

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is reportedly on the radars of Turkish giants Galatasaray and Fenerbahce.

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie will not leave in the summer transfer window despite having offers from two different clubs, according to The Sun.

It has been reported by the British tabloid that Galatasaray and Fenerbahce are both interested in the Netherlands international.

Both the Turkish giants are reportedly willing to meet his current salary of £220,000 a week and are ready to offer him a contract of three years.

However, according to The Sun, former Arsenal captain Van Persie is keen on remaining at United for the 2015-16 season.

The 31-year-old is out of contract at the Manchester outfit at the end of next season, but he is “convinced”, claims that report, that he can win the Premier League title under manager Louis van Gaal in the 2015-16 campaign.

Important player

Van Persie has been on the books of United since 2012, when he joined them from North London outfit Arsenal.

The former Feyenoord star was a huge hit for the Red Devils in the 2012-13 season, scoring 26 goals and created 71 chances in 38 league appearances to help them win the Premier League title.

Last season, though, Van Persie struggled with injuries and could make only 21 Premier League appearances, scoring 12 goals and creating 17 chances in the process.

The Dutchman, who has also had fitness problems this term, has scored 10 goals and created 23 chances in 24 league matches, while having a pass accuracy of 85% and a shot accuracy of 53%.
