Fenerbahce new boy van Persie could see the writing on the wall at Man Utd

Robin van Persie admits he could see his departure from Manchester United coming.


The Dutch striker completed a £4.8million move to Turkish club Fenerbahce on Tuesday after seeing the writing on the wall at Old Trafford.

"It was a situation where I could see it coming, if I'm really honest," he said of his exit.

"I could get used to the idea for quite a bit. It was not a situation where it was just happening from day to day so I could get used to the situation – that is football."
