Robin van Persie is still a Manchester United player despite reports of an imminent Old Trafford exit, according to his agent.

The Netherlands international has been linked with a move away from the 20-time English champions in recent weeks amid reported interest from Serie A side Inter Milan.

Turkish side Fenerbahce emerged as serious contenders for the 31-year-old’s signature in recent days after Van Persie endured a disappointing 2014/15 campaign.

However, the former Arsenal captain’s agent Kees Vos reiterated that Van Persie is set to report for pre-season training at the Red Devils.

“If Robin had found a new club, we would have announced it. And I’m in the Netherlands right now,” Vos is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail.

“All I can say that tomorrow Robin will simply report at Manchester United for the first training session.”

Former Arsenal captain Van Persie joined United from the Gunners back in a £24m deal in the summer of 2012.

The Dutch striker helped to fire Sir Alex Ferguson’s men to the title before the Scot stood down as manager the following summer.
