Man Utd see Van Persie agents dismiss Juventus interest over scandal

Manchester United's chances of signing Arsenal striker Robin van Persie continue to get stronger. The Mirror says Van Persie could be ready to snub Juventus as their coach Antonio Conte is facing a lengthy ban over match-fixing related allegations levelled against him.

Carl Thomas, who is assistant to the Arsenal striker's agent Kees Vos posted on Twitter that Conte's predicament was "hardly the advert" to convince RvP to sign for Italian champions Juve.

Conte is accused of failing to report alleged match-fixing in two games in the 2010-11 season, when he was in charge of Siena in Italy's second tier.

United and Manchester City have been battling it out with Juve for the Arsenal and Holland star this summer, and all three have had bids turned down by the Gunners.
