Would David Moyes be wise to let brilliant Dutch forward leave Old Trafford?

Manchester United could let Robin van Persie leave the club, providing they sign PSG superstar Edinson Cavani this summer, the Mirror reckons.
It’s common knowledge that United boss David Moyes wants to strengthen his squad come the end of the season, following a number of performances that have left United struggling to qualify for the Champions League.
Dutchman van Persie, who has won two consecutive Premier League Golden Boots awards, is not enjoying the same kind of prolific form at Old Trafford this term. Injuries have blighted his campaign, and although he’s notched 11 league goals, there are whisperings he is becoming increasingly discontent at Old Trafford.
The 30-year-old was subbed off early yesterday, and made strange comments in the press last week that United players were occupying the spaces he wanted to work in.
As a result, further reports have emerged that ‘RVP’ would be happy to miss out on a £10m loyalty bonus to force a move through to Italian giants Juventus.
Although United fans would seemingly prefer to keep hold of one of their star players, many would accept his departure if Uruguayan sensation Cavani arrived in his place.
The 27-year-old joined PSG last summer for a mammoth £57m, but has been played out of position on the right of a front three to accommodate the brilliant Zlatan Ibrahimovic through the centre.
Cavani’s still notched 14 goals in 17 starts in Ligue 1, but will no doubt be keen on being awarded a more central, pivotal striker’s role.
If Cavani were to arrive, he would likely become the most expensive British transfer ever, beating Chelsea’s £50m deal for Fernando Torres back in 2011.
Cavani’s wage demands would be similarly extortionate, but with David Moyes promised money to spend, he could quite possibly try and tempt the French giants with a mammoth transfer offer come the summer.
