Robin van Persie’s future at Manchester United has been in the news this weekend after claims that his agent met with Arsene Wenger to discuss a return to Arsenal in the summer.
Today, fresh quotes emerged from Van Persie’s agent stating that the 30-year-old would not be leaving Old Trafford and intended to finish his career with Manchester United.
Great news. Unfortunately, as with a lot of quotes on Twitter, the quotes from Van Persie’s agent are fabricated.

A quick bit of research found this as the original source for the quotes. Nobody of any credibility has reported them and there are no news articles about them. Something as big as Van Persie’s agent insisting he will end his career at Old Trafford would be all over the news within minutes yet there isn’t even a murmering.
Rumblings about a disgruntled Van Persie have been going on all season and there is no doubt that is going to continue for the rest of the year and into the summer as well.
