The former Liverpool striker Dirk Kuyt has said that he could one day influence the Manchester United striker Robin van Persie to join him at the Turkish club Fenerbahce. The Turkish club Fenerbahce have made a lot of high-profile signings from the Premier league following the arrival of Dirk Kuyt a few months ago.
The 31-year-old joined the Turkish club for around £ 1 million, thus bringing an end to his six-year association with Liverpool. He is already looking forward to winning many titles with his new club. He was extremely influential in helping the club secure the signing of the Chelsea midfielder Raul Meireles on the final day of the transfer window.
Now, he has said that he could once again play a major role if the club decides to sign the Manchester United striker Robin van Persie, who is now regarded as one of the best in the world. The 29-year-old Dutchman recently completed a £ 24 million move to Manchester United, but everyone is aware of the fact that might not have a long time at Old Trafford due to his age. In such a scenario, Dirk Kuyt says that he can persuade his international teammate to join him at the Turkish club in the future.
“I could play a role in bringing Van Persie to Fenerbahçe, I’m going to try to bring him here, I have spoken to him about this many times and we were away on holiday together. Personally, I feel in better shape than in 2004, I have gotten over my barren spell and have scored six goals in six games for Fenerbahçe. Istanbul is a beautiful and relaxing city. I’m happy and have even thought about settling down here after my playing career,” said Dirk Kuyt. Fenerbahçe are unbeaten in the league so far.
