Transfer Balls: Robin Van Persie is leaving Manchester United. The Mirror says the former Arsenal skipper is heading to Fenerbahce in a £4.7million deal “after being ordered by Van Gaal to train on his own”.

Robin van Persie will leave Manchester United feeling he has been betrayed by Louis van Gaal.

Betrayed?

The Dutch striker is joining Fenerbahce in a £4.7million deal after being ordered by Van Gaal to train on his own while the rest of his Old Trafford team-mates took part in a full-scale practise match at Carrington on Tuesday.

Why would a player who is leaving the club play with the team he’s leaving? He’s not training on his own; Van Persie is simply not playing in a practise match.

Surely Van Persie knew his time at Manchester United was over when he agreed to play in Turkey.
