Van Gaal admits speaking with Man Utd target Van Persie about future

Holland coach Louis van Gaal admits he's spoken with Arsenal striker Robin van Persie about his future. Van Persie is the subject of a bid from Manchester United.

Van Gaal told a press conference aired on Sky Sports: "I think the player always has to decide for himself.

"When he wants he can ask me for advice but then I'll speak to him, not to you."

He added: "I had the conversation and it was unbelievable. A great and high level, not only at a human side but also in the football vision. It was one of the best meetings I've had with an individual player."
