Van Persie arrived in Turkey on a private chartered jet on Sunday provided by Fenerbahçe and was welcomed by thousands of fans who turned out to greet the star striker at the Sabiha Gökçen airport.
Fenerbahçe have now made a total of eight transfers this season including Lille defender Simon Kjaer, Brazil international Josef De Souza and last seasons Super Lig goal king Fernandao.
The Dutch star played a key role in the Red Devils winning the 2012-13 Premier League title for a record 20th time.
Van Persie’s move to Fenerbahce was met by a mixed response from United fans so we thought we would head over to Twitter to gage the reaction on social media.
There were many tweets recalling his debut season winning the league title for a record 20th time.
Some United fans really took the news bad including young Louis Diamond who could not hold back the tears after learning his hero had parted ways with the club.
