What will happen to Robin van Persie?
Robin van Persie is one of the players that has experienced one of the biggest drops in their playing career as he used to be a superstar with Arsenal and for a certain period of time with Manchester United as well but after a string of underwhelming performances, he was offloaded from Manchester United and the Dutch striker is now performing with Fenerbahce.
The 32 year old player joined Fenerbahce on July of 2015 but it wasn’t until September of that same year when he did manage to make his debut. The start of Robin van Persie’s career in Fenerbahce was a difficult one as he struggled to get consistent playing time in the Turkish club and in the past Robin van Persie has voiced his concern in relation to his lack of games.
"Fenerbahce paid a big transfer fee for me so I want to help the team.But I cannot contribute as much as I want when I am taken off each game. I cannot be efficient like this.We have to find a solution for this situation." This is the statement that Robin van Persie released back on February of 2016 when he was mostly being used as a back-up option.
It seems like the complaints of Robin van Persie were heard by the head officials of Fenerbahce as the Dutchman is now a regular starter for the club but the summer transfer window is approaching and Robin van Persie has been linked with a move to the Chinese Super League.
The Chinese Super League has been attracting high-profile players as there have been a lot of Asian clubs that are splashing out cash to reinforce their respective squads and Robin van Persie is the latest player to be named in the watch-list of a number of clubs from the Chinese League which is growing at a quick pace.
Robin van Persie has never performed in Asia and considering that only a few a months ago, he was voicing his disappointment with Fenerbahce, there is a realistic chance of the veteran attacker making a summer move to the Chinese Super League.
