Fenerbahce have confirmed they have open talks with Manchester United over the transfer of Robin van Persie.

Van Persie, 31, has been discussing personal terms with the Turkish giants ahead of a potential move with Sky Sports suggesting on 9 July that the player has undergone a medical in London.

It would appear Fenerbahce are now on to the final stage of the transfer in negotiating a fee for the Netherlands international, confirming the development through their official Twitter account.

Should Fenerbahce agree a fee with United, Van Persie will be reunited with ex-Old Trafford winger Nani. The Portugal international completed his own move to the club on 6 July for a reported fee of £4.25m ($6.6m), signing a three-year deal.

Not long after his arrival in Turkey, Nani urged the Dutchman to consider joining him. "I haven't had the chance to talk with Robin van Persie yet," Nani said at a press conference.

"But if he comes to Fenerbahce, I am sure that he will be very successful. I know Robin very well and it would be right decision if Fenerbahce sign him."

Van Persie signed for United from Arsenal in 2012 and inspired the club to Premier League title success, hitting 30 goals in what turned out to be Sir Alex Ferguson's last season in charge at Old Trafford.

His form has dipped since that thrilling campaign, though, and during last season's injury-hit campaign, he managed just 10 goals and failed to reclaim a starting role in Louis van Gaal's first team upon his return.

His departure could prompt United to look into adding another striker to their ranks. Van Gaal will be left with just Wayne Rooney and youngster James Wilson to lead his attack next season, with doubts remaining over the future of Javier Hernandez. The club turned down the chance to sign Radamel Falcao from Monaco after his disappointing loan spell at the club last season.
