The Red Devils are not prepared to sell their top-scorer.
There has been much speculation that Robin van Persie wants to leave Manchester United in the summer with Arsenal hoping to re-sign their former striker.
However, the Telegraph reports that the Premier League champions are not prepared to let the 30-year-old leave Old Trafford despite his frustration.
Van Persie openly criticised his team-mates following the 2-0 Champions League last-16 defeat to Olympiakos on Tuesday, stating that they got in each other’s way.
These comments were clearly aimed at manager David Moyes’ tactics without openly naming the Scot, with the forward having become disillusioned with the 50-year-old’s style.
The Netherlands international has previously claimed that it’s Moyes’ archaic training regime that has seen van Persie spend much of the current season on the sidelines due to injury.
Whilst the attacker is clearly unhappy at the Theatre of Dreams, the club are not prepared to let the man they paid £24m for in 2012 to leave just because things have gotten a little tough.
Reports emerged in the January transfer window that van Persie’s agent Kees Vos had met with Gunners boss Arsene Wenger to discuss a return to north London.
Whilst Wenger would be open to the idea, the Frenchman is unwilling to pay over the odds for a player now in his 30s and may look to younger, cheaper options instead.
Van Persie has still managed to score 14 goals in 22 games in all competitions and it seems that if United can purchase some creative midfield talent in the summer then the Dutchman will benefit greatly.
