Robin van Persie does not want to become a super-sub at Manchester United and has dropped a hint he would have interest a move to Juventus.Robin van Persie has revealed that Patrice Evra is trying to convince him to join Juventus’ golden oldies. The Dutch striker is currently assessing his future at Manchester United – and former Old Trafford team-mate Evra has told him he would be terrific for Turin giants Juve.
“I still speak to my old mate Patrice,” said Van Persie. “He has told me stories about how Juventus train, how hard they work, and how they manage to be successful.They have a fantastic spirit in their team. They have a totally different approach from English or Dutch players before games.They grab each other by the head, they shout at each other to pump each other up. And they also have big running sessions after games,” explained the Dutch.
Speaking for the first time about his frustrations at United, Van Persie claimed he wants to play every week next season.he suffered an ankle injury against Swansea in February which kept him out for six weeks. It is reported Juventus will make a £5million bid to sign Robin van Persie, with the Dutch striker due to meet Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal to discuss his future at Old Trafford.
Van Persie was frustrated at only making one start after injuring his ankle in February and when he was restricted to 60 minutes for the Reserves as he tried to maintain his match fitness.“I want to play first-team football and to play every week at a high level at a big club,” he said. “The club will have to do some homework and so will I. I will take everything into consideration and weigh up what is the best solution in this strange situation.”
If Van Gaal indicates that Van Persie is likely to be his No 3 striker next season when they meet later this month, then the player will probably seek a new challenge.
Van Persie believes he can play at the top level for at least another five years. And he has seen how veteran players such as Evra, Carlos Tevez and AndeaPirlo have excelled under Juve coach MassimilianoAllegri this season, winning the Italian double and reaching Saturday’s Champions League final.He said: “It is my ambition to play as many games as possible. I feel fitter than ever.And I know that the more games I play, the more it will help me prepare for the European Championships next summer.”
