Arsenal are reportedly willing to sell Robin van Persie to Manchester United for less than their original asking price.

Arsenal have reportedly admitted defeat in their fight to keep Robin van Persie this summer.

The 29-year-old, who has told the club that he will not be extending his contract beyond June 2013, was booed during the Gunners' 4-0 win over FC Koln on Sunday.

Manchester United are keen on signing Van Persie and are believed to be preparing a second bid for the player.

According to The Sun, Arsenal were previously adamant that Van Persie would not be moving to Old Trafford for a penny less than £25m. However, the North Londoners have now lowered their demands because they fear that the Dutchman could be a disruptive influence if he is not sold.

Van Persie appeared in all 38 of Arsenal's Premier League matches last season, scoring 30 goals.
