Robin van Persie held crisis talks with his agent to discuss a possible exit from Manchester United this summer, reports The Sun.
The Dutchman has 12 months remaining on his current contract but has yet to be offered an extension by Louis van Gaal.
In itself, that is not a problem, but the fact that he has started on the bench in three of Manchester United's last four Premier League games is.
It has left Van Persie fearing for his future at Old Trafford and inspired him to meet his agent Kees Vos in Cheshire’s Alderley Edge on Thursday to discuss his options.
The 31-year-old has two options. He can remain in Manchester and collect his £220,000-a-week wage but may see his playing time significantly reduced or he can accept a lucrative offer to play in Turkey.
Fenerbahce and Galatasaray have both informed Van Persie that they will match his current wages and give him a three-year deal. That would give the striker a £34m retirement fund as well as an assurance that he will go out playing first-team football.
Van Persie had no interest in accepting to offer when it was first made, but having seen his role in the United squad evaporate, he is now reconsidering.
It all hangs on a meeting with Van Gaal next week. The Red Devils manager will sit down with Van Persie to discuss what role he will play at the club if he stays for next season.
The striker was an inspiration when he first joined from Arsenal in 2012, scoring 30 goals and providing the catalyst for their 13th Premier League title charge.
However, injuries and bad form have hit his current campaign and he has scored just ten thus far.
Is Robin van Persie's career at Old Trafford coming to and end?
