De Boer cited Galatasaray star Wesley Sneijder as an example Van Persie could follow.
De Boer wrote in a column for Voetbal International: “Van Persie can learn from Sneijder’s example. Wesley flicked the switch a year before the World Cup in Brazil. For Wesley, the realisation came just in time — he has extended his career with them.
“I am convinced that Van Persie can do that too. Robin can still be of great value to the Oranje.”
Galatasaray boss Hamza Hamzoglu has confirmed that the Lion’s are interested in signing Van Persie.
“We want to sign players who will both improve the squad and excite our fans. No manager would be able to say no to Van Persie,” Hamzaoglu told Fanatik.
The Netherlands international striker has been closely linked with a move to Galatasaray and Lions board member Cüneyt Tanman was reported to have held talks with Van Perise’s agent last week.
Van Persie would be joining fellow Dutch national teammate Sneijder if he were to make the move.
Sneijder has won two league titles with the Lions and also helped his side reach the Champions League quarter-finals in 2013-14.
