Fenerbahce have reportedly put former Premier League and Netherlands star Robin van Persie up for sale this summer.

Despite scoring 22 goals in his first season for the Turkish side, Van Persie is reportedly heading for the exit door, states the Manchester Evening News.

Van Persie fell out with manager Vitor Pereira after being repeatedly being taken off in key games throughout the season.

Fenerbahce club president, Azil Yildirim, has now revealed that he will listen to offers for the Dutchman should he decide to quit.

“Van Persie? We’re waiting for buyers, if he wants to be sold,” he revealed.

‘RVP’ scored 58 goals in 105 appearances over three seasons at United, and helped the Red Devils to their 2012-13 Premier League title, before Louis van Gaal allowed him to leave last summer.

Van Persie hit out at his countryman Van Gaal last July after leaving Old Trafford on far from amicable terms.

“I asked to play in the reserves – to get my minutes – but after that I was on the bench again,” Van Persie told the Sunday Times.

“The atmosphere changed between me and Louis and people at the club saw it – but I was always professional.

“I was still thinking we could come back from holiday and start from scratch, but when I came back it wasn’t an honest battle any more. Fighting to get back in the team wasn’t given to me as an option.

“I didn’t get angry or emotional. These things are part of football, part of life. You have to make the best out of any situation so I’m doing this by moving on.”
