Robin van Persie heading for Manchester United exit

Juventus and Inter Milan are among clubs showing interest in Robin van Persie's situation at Old Trafford.

The Manchester United striker has been out of the picture during the club's rise up the table with an ankle ligament injury ruling him out for the past six weeks. He has still managed 10 goals this season but his performances have been under par.

United want to liven up their strikeforce in the summer and are looking to bring in two new forwards with Radamel Falcao expected to return to Monaco and Van Persie in danger of becoming a more peripheral figure.

The Holland international turns 32 in August and will have one year left on his contract at the end of this season. United will talk to him in the summer but would listen to what other clubs have to offer.

Juventus and Inter are admirers and know he could give them a short-term quality option.

Real Madrid, Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona are also in the market for back-up strikers of his level, although Barca remain under a transfer embargo until January.
