If you believe Italian journalist Di Marzio, Manchester United star Robin Van Persie has arrived Istanbul to have medicals to complete his move from Manchester United to Fenerbache after both clubs agreed a deal and the player agreed personal terms with Fenerbahce.
Di Marzio who is highly reliable tweeted a picture of the Dutchman undergoing what seems to be truly medical examination with the Turkish side. Robin Van Persie struggled with United last season but ended up being the club’s second highest goal scorer.
His departure from the club will however mean Louis Van Gaal will be under pressure to bring in another big name striker as a replacement as the club will then have Rooney as the only senior striker in the squad.
Offloading Robin Van Persie who is now in his thirties is however good move by United. His departure will free up as much as 230,000 per week in wages which can be spent on another striker who is able to deliver week in week out.
Already United have been linked with a move for Gonzalo Higuain, Karim Benzema, Edinson Cavani and Alexandre Lacazette of Lyon.
