Manchester United could be left with just two strikers for the start of the new season, with Javier Hernandez in talks over a move away from the club following the departures of Will Keane and Robin van Persie.

Van Persie, 31, has completed his move to Fenerbahce, according to the club's president who confirmed the move to Turkish newpspaer Fanatik. The striker travelled to Turkey on 12 July and was mobbed by supporters as he touched down in Istanbul.

United are expected to confirm the Netherlands international's departure this week.

Keane, 22, has also left Old Trafford, signing a one-year-loan deal with Preston North End on 8 July.

And Hernandez could make it a trio of departures, with MLS newcomers Orlando City hopeful of striking a deal for the Mexico international.

"Regarding Chicharito, of course he's a great player that every club in the world would love to have and we'd love the chance to have him," club chairman Flavio Augusto da Silva said in quotes reported by the Orlando Sentinel.

"Right now we don't have anything done, and you know during the process of negotiations – where many clubs have interest, including us, because why not – the less we talk about it the better. So we'll see if there is a possibility and then we'll move forward."

He added: "We hope in one or two weeks to be ready to talk about Chicharito in a different way."

Hernandez's departure would leave Louis van Gaal with the striking options of Wayne Rooney and James Wilson heading into the new season. While the arrival of Memphis Depay, who was the Eredivisie's top scorer last season with 22 goals, promises goals, Van Gaal expects the 21 year old to take time to adjust to the rigours of the Premier League.

With Rooney and Wilson hitting just 16 goals between them last season, the club are reportedly in the market for more firepower. In June, United were heavily linked with a move for Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane, with the Manchester Evening News suggesting the club's chief executive Ed Woodward is ready to bid as much as £50m ($77.6m) for the England international.

The Guardian also claims that Edinson Cavani remains Van Gaal's first choice option to replace the outgoing Van Persie, with Paris Saint-Germain's interest in signing Angel di Maria sparking speculation over a possible swap deal.
