Fans’ view: Who should replace Robin van Persie at Manchester United if he leaves?

If Robin van Persie left Manchester United this summer it would leave Louis van Gaal’s squad worryingly short of options up front.

Radamel Falcao has already left the club following a disappointing loan spell while James Wilson needs more time to develop.

Wayne Rooney would be left as the only viable option so there is no doubt that van Gaal would be in for a new forward if van Persie was to move on.

We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on who Man United should be looking to bring in:

Of course, world-class forwards are hard to come by at the best of times and it will be difficult to tempt the likes of Thomas Muller and Karim Benzema to Old Trafford but United should always be targeting the best players.

Whoever United decide to sign, it is important that they do their homework on the player.

Falcao was desperately poor at times last season and the loan has to go down as a huge failure. The club cannot afford a repeat if they are to be successful on all fronts next term.
