Fenerbahce has denied reports that Robin Van Persie will be heading out of the club in the January transfer window.
The Dutch international has been linked with a move back to the premier league as champions Chelsea are reportedly keen on the striker.
But the Turkish club has released a statement saying that Van Persie is not interested in leaving the club and they won’t entertain any offer for the 32 year old.
There have been reports in Turkey that Fenerbahce is preparing for the striker’s exit and will replace Van Persie with Brazil international Fred but the club has come out to squash such rumours saying:
“Over recent days there were many transfer reports about Robin van Persie in the media.
“But these are against our player’s motivation.
“We don’t have any idea for selling him and he wants to stay with us too.
“He is a valuable player of our squad and he is going to play for us.”
Van Persie has scored 5 goals in 17 appearances for Fenerbahce this term and reports claim he will be looking for a move out of turkey after failing to adapt.
In similar fashion, Fenerbahce was also forced to deny reports linking the striker to Spanish giants Barcelona.
The club’s boss Pereira denied that the club was looking to sell the player to Barcelona:
“I have no problem with Van Persie,” the 47-year old told the club’s official website.
He added: “I have no information about a transfer. I am pleased with him”.
Van Persie moved to Fenerbahce last summer after falling out of Louis Van Gaals plans.
