Robin van Persie could soon be seen making a return to boyhood club Feyenoord, due to inconsistent game time at Fenerbahce.
The Dutchman has made only 4 appearances for the Turkish side, and has failed to add a single minute of on-field time since August, despite scoring 40 goals in 91 games since his arrival at the club back in 2015.
Van Persie left for the Red Devils after reportedly seeing no future with Arsenal, who were in slow decline since their move to the Emirates Stadium.
Though initially the Arsenal faithful remained relatively calm, the Holland international’s overexcited celebration against them completely saw him being branded as a ‘traitor’.
Regardless, the talented frontman enjoyed a very successful spell under Sir Alex Ferguson, whilst also bagging a Premier League medal. However, an eventual fallout with the Red Devils opened his exit door to Turkey, where RVP now faces a very similar situation.
The lethal striker is reportedly keen on a move back to Feyenoord, but will only be allowed to do so as a free agent, as Fener look to free up money to sign another player. In fact, as per reports, Van Persie “already has an agreement” ready with the Dutch outfit, but will be left out of the Fenerbahce squad if no deal is reached.
The out of favour 34-year-old left the Eredivisie side back in 2004, when he secured a switch to Arsenal, but he could soon be seen returning to his homeland.
