A die-hard Manchester United fan was left sobbing after finding out Robin van Persie was being sold by the Premier League club.

With tears rolling down his face, the boy is asked by his mum what has happened to make him so upset and why his football team won't have his favourite player anymore.

The boy is barely even able to articulate the name "Robin van Persie", through his tears as he says, "he's going to be sold!" and points up at his wall which shows a lovingly handmade tribute to the player.

The child's heartbreak is so palpable that even for a non-football fan watching the video above is heart-wrenching.
