Van Persie has reportedly agreed to personal terms with Fenerbahce and could transfer to the Turkish club from Manchester United, The Guardian reports.

Van Persie has publicly stated that he wants to remain at United, but with playing time likely to be sparse next season, he seems resigned to the fact that he'll have to move on if he wants to keep starting. Joining Fenerbahce will allow him to continue playing in the Champions League, though it still must be a downgrade for a player who has spent considerable time in the Premier League.
