Netherlands star, Robin Van Persie, has thanked Arsenal football club and Manchester United for the thirteen years he spent playing for both clubs in the English premier league.

He took to his Twitter handle to show his appreciation with images of his time and trophies won at the clubs.

The 31-year-old striker ended his three-year stay at Manchester United, moving to Turkey in a bid to guarantee first-team football ahead of next summer’s European Championship

The veteran striker moves for a fee in the region of €6 million and will join former United team-mate Nani at Fenerbahce in Istanbul.

The experienced Netherlands international moved to Old Trafford from Premier League rival Arsenal in 2012 and was pivotal to United winning the title in his first season at the club.

But an injury-plagued campaign last season saw him manage just 10 goals in the Premier League, with his chances of featuring regularly diminished by the capture of countryman Memphis Depay from PSV.
