Van Persie’s agent reached an agreement in principle with the Super Lig side after two days of negotiations in Istanbul, according to The Guardian.
United and Fenerbahce are said to be negotiating a fee still but it is reported that Van Persie has accepted personal terms on a four-year contract.
The 31-year-old stated recently that he will only leave United if the move was right for his family. Van Persie’s wife is said to have had reservations over moving to Turkey but she is now said to be willing to relocate after spending the last week in Istanbul.
The move would bring to an end Van Persie’s three-year stay at Old Trafford. The forward joined United from Arsenal for £24million in 2012 and the Dutchman earned the club’s Player of the Season award after scoring 28 goals which fired the Red Devils to the title during Sir Alex Ferguson’s final year in charge.
Due in part to injuries, Van Persie’s contribution has waned over the last two campaigns. He scored 12 Premier League goals under David Moyes in the 2013-14 season before notching only 10 under Louis van Gaal.
