Robin van Persie's agent has sought to clarify the latest speculation regarding his client's future, insisting that the Manchester United striker has not found a new club and will report for preseason training today (6 July) despite strong rumours linking him with a summer transfer to Fenerbahce.
The Dutch international's current contract is due to expire in June 2016 and with his influence at Old Trafford having notably declined under Louis van Gaal, Van Persie has seen his future subject to increasingly fervent speculation of late.
A postseason trip to Rome last month sparked rumours that he was set to join Serie A outfit Lazio, while Galatasaray manager Hamza Hamzaoglu and Besiktas director Yalcin Kaya Yilmaz have both previously expressed an interest in signing the player during respective interviews with Fanatik and Haberturk.
According to reports published over the weekend, however, it is Fenerbahce who appear to have jumped ahead of their Turkish rivals in the race for Van Persie's signature. The Guardian suggests that the 31-year-old has agreed a deal in principle to join the Super Lig runners-up after representative Kees Vos spent two days in Istanbul negotiating personal terms.
The same publication claims that Van Persie is willing to sign a four-year deal after talking to former international teammate Dirk Kuyt about his experiences at Sukru Saracoglu Stadium and that United were currently in the process of discussing a fee.
Voss does not seem to accept that talks over Van Persie's Premier League departure are quite so advanced. He told Voetbal International: "If Robin had found a new club, we would have announced it. And I'm in the Netherlands right now.
"All I can say is that tomorrow, Robin will simply report at Manchester United for the first training session."
While uncertainty regarding Van Persie continues to reign, one current United player who does seem set for an imminent move to Fenerbahce is Nani.
The Portuguese winger, who spent the 2014/15 season on loan with former club Sporting Lisbon as part of the deal that saw Marcos Rojo head in the opposite direction, arrived in Turkey yesterday (5 July) to undergo a medical and is expected to agree terms worth £55,000-per-week as claimed by The Mail.
Copa America winner Angelo Henriquez is also likely to depart on a permanent deal following a successful spell with Dinamo Zagreb.
