Van Persie Negotiates Cut-Price Exit

Manchester United are in talks with Robin van Persie over a settlement agreement which would see the striker leave Old Trafford this summer. Van Persie returned to pre-season training at Carrington on Monday amid strong speculation in Turkey that a move to Fenerbahce is close to completion.

But it is understood that the Netherlands international is hoping to have the final year of his contract – worth around €17 million (£12m) – paid up before he leaves. United are keen to get his huge salary off the wage bill this summer, which already means they are likely to recoup a fee of around €7m (£5m) for a player signed for five times that amount in 2012.
