Mario Balotelli, Rickie Lambert and Joe Allen among Liverpool's unwanted XI

The ESPN FC panel discuss the reports that Manchester United's Robin van Persie is off to Turkish side, Fenerbahce.

Robin van Persie's agent has played down reports that he is close to finalizing a deal that will see the Manchester United striker join Turkish side Fenerbahce.

Widespread reports on Saturday suggested Van Persie's adviser Kees Vos had been in Turkey to iron out the fine details of a move for the 31-year-old Dutch forward, but he was quick to dismiss those claims in comments appearing on Voetball International.

"If Robin had found a new club, we would have announced it," Vos said.
