Cape Town - Manchester United are willingly to allow Robin van Persie to leave the club this summer if they can find a buyer.

talkSPORT that Robin van Persie will be allowed to leave Old Trafford in the summer transfer window.

The 31-year-old striker, who endured a difficult 2014/15 season at Manchester United, has just one year left on his current deal at the Theatre of Dreams.

Van Persie has been linked with a move to Turkish giants, Fenerbahce but a stumbling block to any deal involving Van Persie will be the striker's high wages.

"Can they pay Van Persie what he's getting at United? It's nearly £250,000-a-week. Let's just see on that one." Jamie Jackson, of the Guardian, told talkSPORT.

Jackson also confirmed that Van Persie will be allowed to quit Old Trafford.

"Robin van Persie is for sale," he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast show.

Van Persie won his first Premier League title in the 2012/13 season under Sir Alex Ferguson.
