Robin van Persie has been a revelation at Manchester United this season and now the Dutch international forward says he would like to finish his career at the Red Devils.
The 29-year-old joined United from Arsenal at the beginning of this season but has already become a firm fans’ favourite at Old Trafford.
With 19 Premier League goals this season – second only to Liverpool’s Luis Suarez – Van Persie has been instrumental in firing United to a 15-point lead at the league summit.
But with the likes of Ryan Giggs, 39, and Paul Scholes, 38, as team-mates, Van Persie has his eyes on a long stay in the north-west.
Van Persie told Dutch magazine Voetbal International: “For the next few years I will be at Manchester United - and maybe longer. United could be my last club.”
“You have a number of clubs in Europe where older players can find it good, where they are valued.”
“You used to have that at Juventus and AC Milan, Manchester United today is a good example. So who knows how long I will stay at the club,” he added.
“There is a new challenge for me every day at United. My development is an ongoing process.”
“That gets an extra boost when you are surrounded by new coaches and team-mates, all with their own ideas, in a totally new environment.”AFP
