Manchester United striker Robin van Persie will reportedly be offered an £18m three-year deal by Qatari club Lekhwiya to quit Old Trafford in the summer.

According to the Mirror, Michael Laudrup, who currently manages the side, has set his sights on the Dutch forward, who has struggled for form and fitness this campaign.

Van Persie has failed to replicate his best form this campaign and regular injuries have limited his appearances for United. He has made 27 appearances in the league for the Red Devils this season but managed just 10 goals, which is a far cry from his debut season when he scored 26 goals in 38 games to give the club their 20th English title.

The Dutch forward will be entering the final year of his contract with the club and there has been no indication of the club offering him an extension on his current deal.

Van Persie has admitted that he wants to remain at the club and honour the final year of his contract, but risks becoming a peripheral figure as Louis van Gaal is plotting an overhaul of his attacking options ahead of next season.

The former Bayern Munich manager has refused to discuss his compatriot's future before the end of the season, but it is likely that he will be allowed to leave with Turkish giants Fenerbache and Galatasaray reportedly expressing their interest in signing him.

However, a massive offer from the Qatari side could tempt the Dutch striker to shift base to the Middle East, as reports claim that he has already held talks with his representatives as he takes stock of his future ahead of the upcoming campaign.
