Audio: Mark Lawrenson repeats Van Persie transfer request rumour

FOOTBALL pundit Mark Lawrenson has claimed he has heard rumours that Manchester United star Robin Van Persie has handed in a transfer request.

It comes as Van Persie is set to return to the side against Newcastle today having missed a number of games through injury.

However, there are now claims that the Dutchman wants to leave the club in January.

Former Liverpool player Lawerson told Today FM: “Theres all sorts of rumors coming out of the training ground at the moment, and one or two of the press boys I know who cover Manchester United have said ‘the big whisper’ is that Van Persie might have asked for a transfer on Tuesday.”

“If that happens, what a mess that is going to be for David Moyes” he added.
