The reporter went onto claim that the Yellow Canaries however, are intent on negotiating a lower fee for the 31-year-old striker.
Fenerbahçe managed to negotiate Nani’s price from Nani down to £4.3 million and are hoping to strike a deal with United for below the asking price.
As reported by Turkish-football.com’s Emre Sarıgül and the Guardian’s Jamie Jackson on Saturday Fenerbahçe have reached an agreement-in-principle for the United star.
SkyBet recently suspended betting on the United star joining a new club before the end of the transfer market.
Chris Spicer from Sky Sport said: “We already held Fenerbahce as clear favourites to sign Van Persie but recent media reports seem to have sparked more intense interest, with the one-sided nature of the money forcing us to pull the market.
“Van Persie has been odds-on to leave Manchester United since the transfer window re-opened and it now looks like his destination has been settled.”
Van Persie is expected to leave United before the team set off to the US for their pre-season summer tour.
