Manchester United striker Robin van Persie is reportedly on the verge of completing a move to Turkish club Fenerbahce.

According to the Guardian, the Turkish giants have reached an agreement with the Red Devils for the transfer of the striker, with Fenerbahce set to pay a fee of around £4.7m ($7.2m).

Van Persie had a difficult 2014/15 campaign, where he struggled for form and fitness throughout the season managing just 10 goals in the Premier League. The former Arsenal striker, who has just one-year remaining on his current deal had indicated that next year's European Championships in France and his family will be top of his mind while making a decision regarding his future.

"When I signed for United, I knew these kind of (reports) would appear. Next year is the European Championship. That tournament is going to play a big role in the choice I will make," Van Persie said, as quoted by the Daily Mail.

"Whatever I do Bouchra, Shaqueel and Dina Layla are the highest of my priorities. They have to be happy," the United forward added.

The striker, who lost his place in the team, would have been guaranteed first-team football next season, and is set to move to Fenerbahce to reportedly replace compatriot Dirk Kuyt and become the highest paid player at the club.

The Turkish club's sporting director Guiliano Terraneo is said to have travelled to England to hold final talks with United, with the move expected to be announced before the end of the week.

According to Sky Sports, Van Persie is reportedly undergoing the first part of his medical in England after having agreed a four-year deal ahead of his move to Fenerbahce. The Dutch forward will become the second United player to join the Sarı Kanaryalar (Yellow Canaries) from United, following their confirmation of Nani earlier in the month.
