Man Utd Offer Van Persie Staggering Payoff To Get Him Off Books

Robin van Persie 3

Reports are out claiming that Manchester United are willing to offer Robin van Persie an amazing payoff to clear him off the books.

The Mail on Sunday reported that United will offer Van Persie £5million to quit the club this summer.

The 31-year-old striker has 14 months left on his £250,000-a-week contract at Old Trafford, but United officials are understood to be willing to pay the remaining half of a £10m loyalty bonus — agreed when he signed from Arsenal in 2012 — to free up wages for another striker.

Italian giants Juventus and Inter Milan have both been linked with a summer move and United bosses are willing to take a cut-price fee, as they realise Van Persie will have to take a pay cut to join a Serie A side.
