Robin van Persie took over the controls of his flight to Turkey as the Manchester United striker edges closer to a move to Fenerbahce on Sunday afternoon.

The Netherlands international prepared to jet off to Turkey after his prospective employers agreed a reported £4.7m deal for the 31-year-old striker.

Van Persie endured a difficult season under his compatriot Louis van Gaal after he scored just 10 goals in 27 top-flight games.

And it appears the former Arsenal captain is in firm control of his future after Van Persie ventured into the cock pit.

Van Persie uploaded a snap with his family outside of their private jet ahead of the next chapter in the Netherlands striker’s career.

Van Persie played a key part in Sir Alex Ferguson’s final Premier League title success after he scored 26 goals in 38 games in 2012/13 season.
