Fenerbahce open Van Persie transfer talks

Fenerbahce have opened talks with Manchester United over the transfer of Robin van Persie

The Turkish club, who acquired Van Persie's former United team-mate Nani earlier this week, have confirmed that negotiations to secure the signing of the striker are underway and reports have suggested a deal could be completed by the end of the week. 

A tweet from the club read: "Fenerbahce has begun transfer talks with Robin van Persie and his club Manchester United."

Goal understands that Van Persie and United are in talks over a settlement agreement which would see the striker leave Old Trafford, with the Netherlands international hoping to have the final year of his contract - worth around £12 million (€16.7m) - paid up before he departs. 

Van Persie has struggled for regular first-team football under Louis van Gaal at United, and made 27 Premier League appearances in 2014-15, scoring 10 goals. 

The 31-year-old has previously outlined his desire to play regular first-team football and it appears that a move to Turkey is edging closer. 

Fenerbahce have also been linked with Arsenal goalkeeper David Ospina as they continue their summer recruitment drive.
