The transfer window has only just closed for the remainder of the season, but there is transfer talk in Rob Shepherd’s column in the Daily Mail.
The player in focus is Robin van Persie, with Shepherd suggesting the Dutchman could leave Manchester United and make a stunning return to Arsenal.
In his column, Shepherd wrote:
Manchester United manager David Moyes plans a mass makeover of the squad at the end of the season.
Indeed, after unveiling Juan Mata at the start of the week, Moyes made hints of a substantial clearout followed by a spending spree to rejuvenate United in the close season.
And the biggest shock sale could be Van Persie—especially if United succeed in persuading Wayne Rooney to stay rather than move to Chelsea or PSG.
Shepherd suggests Van Persie and his family have not settled well in the North West, as opposed to when they lived in London, and claims the player “would love” to return to Arsenal.
