‘AARGHVP’: The Sun speculate that Robin van Persie may be out for rest of Manchester United’s season

The hammer blow was delivered to United fans early on Friday afternoon: RVP is out of the Bayern tie, having been confirmed with a knee injury which will sideline him for 4-6 weeks.

The full 6 weeks would take van Persie through to the beginning of May, though, so their speculation that he could be out for the rest of the season seems a bit of doomsday scaremongering, with the league running until the 11th of May.

And also, that presumes United won’t be in the Champions League final…ahem.
