Robin van Persie wants to stay at Manchester United for years.

Van Persie enjoyed a stellar debut campaign, collecting a second successive golden boot as he fired United to the Premier League title.

It justified the Dutchman’s decision to leave Arsenal for a rival – and he’s now revealed he wants to extend his Old Trafford stay.The star striker said: “I have three more years to go and I would like to stay longer.

“I know, and I see people around me, making decisions where I think these guys will look back and say ‘was that a good one?’ I don’t want that.

“I want to play as long as possible at the highest level.”

Winning trophies is a key motivation for Van Persie, who had not won a thing at Arsenal since their FA Cup final victory over United in 2005.

Already he has added the Community Shield to his collection – and he doesn’t feel United should be settling for that.

He added: “That [winning trophies] is what it is all about.

“Last year we got one trophy in four. Now we have to look at it from the opposite side.

“We have the chance to get five this year. How many do we get out of those five? In my opinion we should be able to win two or three.”
