Report: Barcelona Prepare Sensational Bid for Van Persie?

By on December 7, 2013

Numerous reports are coming in this evening that Barcelona have prepared a stunning bid for Manchester United forward Robin van Persie.

Sports Direct News and others have reported that a bid from the Catalan club may, in fact, be imminent.

Manchester United have been having a torrid time in the Premier League so far this season, and there have been numerous suggestions that van Persie and Moyes’ relationship is strained. Only last night it was reported by multiple news sources that van Persie might have handed in an official transfer request.

Moyes has rubbished those rumours by suggesting no such request has emerged, but there are still signficant murmurs in the football news community that something is afoot.

Gerardo Martino, Barcelona manager, is reportedly hugely keen on the Dutch striker, and he is desperate for reinforcements following the long-term injury to Lionel Messi.

It might be suggested that Man United would simply reject any bid from Barcelona for van Persie, but with the added backdrop of an awful season and a potentially strained relationship with Moyes, there is a possibility that a significant bid might prove successful.
