Robin Van Persie’s exit from United looks set to be completed this week as the striker nears a deal with Turkish side Fenerbahce. United’s former top scorer is poised to follow in Nani’s footsteps this week – according to the latest reports.
The Telegraph notes:
Fenerbahce are on the verge of confirming the signing of Robin van Persie from Manchester United after the Dutch striker was told he was not guaranteed a first team place under Louis van Gaal.
The Dutch international is expected to have a medical this week and will sign a three-year deal with the option of another year.
It’s sad to see a player who once played such a prominent part in United’s success depart the club but it’s not entirely surprising given the relative lack of games he’s played over the past two seasons – and his advancing age. No matter what the future holds for Van Persie, the striker who upset the Arsenal fans by moving to Old Trafford – only to upset them even more by winning us the title.
