Robin Van Persie Set For Return To Former Club

These days whenever a football player leaves his club for pastures new he is met with at least one snake emoji but Robin Van Persie might avoid that if he leaves Fenerbahce for one of his former teams.

When Robin Van Persie left Arsenal for Manchester United he said he was 'listening to the little kid inside him,' or words to that effect, had he made that move a couple of years later he'd have been met with a lot of snake emojis.

Fabian Delph and Raheem Sterling were the peak of the infamous little picture on tweets when they moved to Manchester City.

Delph kind of brought it on himself when he said he wouldn't leave Aston Villa when City moved for him initially only to change his mind when they offered more money. Sterling's agent said he wouldn't stay at Liverpool for virtually all the money in the world.

But Van Persie missed out on the whole thing despite ditching Arsenal for their rivals Manchester United.

Now at Fenerbahce the striker looks set for a return to his first senior team, Feyenoord, in the summer, according to reports in the Dutch media. After just two season in the Turkish Super Lig.

RVP played at Old Trafford for three season under three different managers. Winning the league in his first season under Sir Alex Ferguson, he clearly didn't like David Moyes and his relationship with Louis van Gaal quickly went awry despite their previous connection at international level.

For the past two years the former Arsenal man has been playing in Istanbul with Fenerbahce, scoring nine goals in the league this season and coming up against United in the Europa League.

Feyenoord won the Eredivise under Giovanni van Bronckhorst last season so a return to De Kuip would see him playing in the Champions League next term.

If he does sign for them the 33 year-old would essentially be a replacement for club legend Dirk Kuyt who secured the title with a hat-trick in his last game before retirement.
