Galatasaray boss Hamza Hamzaoglu has hinted that Robin Van Persie might be out of his club’s financial reach but did not give up on signing the Manchester United striker this summer.

Hamzaoglu was speaking to the Turkish newspaper Fanatik where he praised the Dutchman’s quality and how no manager can say NO to having him as his lead striker. He did however maintained a stance that Van Persie could be out of his reach due to a high price tag.

Hamzaoglu said: “Van Persie is not someone managers can say ‘no’ to, but the budget is important. We hope we can agree a reasonable price. We will give it as much time as we can.”

“Robin van Persie is not on our agenda,” Spor 3 quotes him as saying. “The costs are very high. This year, we will be a little more careful.”

Van Persie will soon be 32 and is growingly unsure over his role in Man United’s senior team. Despite the presence of his former International manager Louis Van Gaal, Van Persie has failed to get in to the starting 11 on a regular basis.

Van Persie, who featured in 27 league games for United could only manage 10 goals last season. Part of the reason was Van Gaal’s inability to find a right mix at Old Trafford.

A season has gone by and we are yet to come to terms whether Van Gaal does know if Van Persie will be a regular in his playing 11. At the moment, a move away from United looks the more and more on the cards.

Dutch legend Frank De Boer has asked Van Persie to learn from his fellow international team mate Wesley Sneijder and assess his options soon to be of more use to his national side.

De Boer said: “Van Persie can learn from Sneijder’s example. Wesley flicked the switch a year before the World Cup in Brazil.

For Wesley, the realization came just in time — he has extended his career with them.

“I am convinced that Van Persie can do that too. Robin can still be of great value to the Oranje.”
