Robin van Persie wants to leave Manchester United this summer - with Juventus waiting to pounce.

The Dutch striker joined the Red Devils in a controversial £24million move from Arsenal in 2012, and enjoyed a superb first season at Old Trafford where he played a key role in the title winning campaign.

Van Persie, 30, is understood to be unhappy at the club following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson and the ex-Gunners star has also had to contend with a number of injuries and a loss of form.

The United hitman was critical of his team-mates after the 2-0 Champions League defeat to Olympiakos in their last-16 clash earlier this month.
