Manchester United could be my last club: Robin van Persie

Robin van Persie has admitted he may end his career at Manchester United. The 29-year-old Holland striker says the fact United have a track record in valuing older players such as Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes may persuade him to see out his playing days at Old Trafford

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.”

The former Arsenal striker’s current United contract will end when he is 33 but with 39-year-old Giggs and Scholes, 38, for inspiration, the striker may be tempted to extend his time at the 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.
