An estimated 18 000 fans clad in the iconic navy blue and yellow stripes of Fenerbahce turned out at its Sukru Saracoglu stadium in Istanbul to witness van Persie’s signing ceremony, chanting his name and letting off flares.

Reports according to BBC SPORT:

The striker, 31, ended a three-year stay at Old Trafford to join the Turkish side for an undisclosed fee.

He said: “It’s part of football, it’s part of life. It was a situation where I could see it coming, if I’m really honest.”

Van Persie added that he “got used to the idea” of leaving United.

He said: “I had a good moment with the players the day before I came to Istanbul so that was special. Then you see that everyone really appreciated my time there, that was important for me.”
