There were recent speculations that Fenerbahce’s Robin van Persie was wanted by current La Liga and European champions Barcelona, as the Dutch international was not being properly utilized by the Turkish giants.

The Spanish media had stated that the 32-year-old superstar had attracted the attention of Barca boss Luis Enrique, who was keen on strengthening his front-line at the Nou Camp.
