If Robin Van Persie does leave i think Harry Kane or Paulo Dybala would be an ideal replacement !! #MUFC

RVP is a great player. But if we want to go 433 next season, Roo must start up top. And the thought of paying 250k for a sub makes me uneasy — Hayley B (@Hayles_101) April 7, 2015
Seen the rumours about RVP. We’ll always remember how he was in his debut season, not how he is now. Won us a league, the legend.

A shame RVP spent so many miserable years at Arsenal. He could have had a successful career with us and become a legend like RVN. — Luke Alexandre (@Luke__Alexandre) April 6, 2015
As much as I like RvP, he’s the type of ST that United need moving forward. He needs to be replaced, I would still be sad to see him go.

Hated on RvP at start of the season, but going to be so sad when he leaves. 2012/13 season he gave us was beautiful. pic.twitter.com/n5H3uDqciN

Sad to see RVP go. Thought he’d win more with us — Salim Lakhi (@PrawnSandwiched) April 6, 2015
LRT one of the more reliable guys are saying RVP will be offloaded.. Sad if its true but his decline is far to great to ignore

It would be sad to see RVP go although I have found him very frustrating, this season especially. Did so much to bring us the 20th.
