The former Arsenal striker and current Manchester United’s striker Robin Van Persie is about to be replaced by Edinson Cavani, who is currently playing at PSG. The former Old Trafford’s coach Sir Alex Ferguson brought van Persie just before his retirement for £24m. Although, Van Persie helped The Reds to win EPL title in the year of 2012/13 by scoring 26 goals, yet, no he is being debilitated in this season and the result is coming out by his current form and performance in this season.
