Van Persie Joins Fenerbahce from Man United

Robin van Persie has completed his transfer to Fenerbahce for an undisclosed fee.

The 31-year-old was unveiled in front of over 10,000 club supporters at the Sukru Saracoglu stadium on Tuesday.

Fenerbahce are yet to release details of the contract but the Netherlands international confirmed at a news conference he has signed a three year contract earlier today.

“I promise you one thing – I will do everything in my power to help Fenerbahce win as many trophies to make you happy. Let’s do it together,” Van Persie said.

Man United signed Van Persie from Arsenal for £24m in 2012 and he scored 26 goals to help the Red Devils win the Premier League title in his first season.

Injury limited him to just 27 league matches and 10 goals last season, but notched up a total of 58 goals in 105 appearances during the course of his three-year spell at United.

He is the second United player to join Fenerbahce this summer, after Portugal international Nani joined for £4.25m last week.

Van Persie also said he has spoken to other clubs about a move and that he had “no hard feelings” against Manchester United.

“It’s part of football, it’s part of life. I had a good moment with the players the day before I came to Istanbul so that was special,” he said.
