The 84-year-old was quoted in the Daily Express saying:
‘What right as a player does van Persie have to say Arsenal is not heading in the right direction?’
‘He might be looking to move, but I don’t think United should touch him with a bargepole.’
To be honest, I don’t think United are that keen on Van Persie, and I don’t see him joining the Manchester club either. Although it looks a good move for the 28-year-old, I can only see him joining their bitter-rivals Manchester City, if he stays in England, or moving to Serie A champions Juventus.
I don’t believe for a second that Docherty thinks that Van Persie isn’t a top player, but I reckon the forward’s attitude in recent days and long list of injuries over the years have disappointed the former Arsenal right-back.
United, or any other team for that matter, would be bonkers to splash out £25-30 million for a 28-year-old, injury-prone player who produced one exceptional season in eight for Arsenal.
Still, here’s hoping one of them are dumb enough to purchase him this summer for the amount stated above!
