Robin van Persie: Would sign new United deal

Robin van Persie: Would sign new United deal

The 30-year-old collected a Premier League medal at Old Trafford last season, which was his first following eight years at Arsenal.

The Dutchman told MUTV: "I have three more years to go and I would like to stay longer.

"I want to play as long as possible at the highest level. Winning trophies is what it is all about."

Van Persie says his only disappointment from last season was not being able to find the back of the net during their Champions League defeat by Real Madrid.

The Spaniards won 3-2 on aggregate following the sending-off of Nani while the Reds were leading.

United open their European campaign on Tuesday against Bayer Leverkusen and Van Persie said: "It is probably my only regret about last year.

"The referee played an important part but I should have scored at least one or two goals in those games.

"I didn't, which I don't like. I have to improve on that. Hopefully we can do better this year."

t all started going downhill when they started putting a photo of the writer along side their story. Journalists started to think that 'they' are the story, rather than what they write. Smug, self obsessed & up their own arse's. That sums up the majority of newspaper sports reporters.

he reason so much sh*t is written about football is because there are so many people who want to read sh*t about football. Now shut up, take my money, and tell me Ronaldo is going to sign for Van Haal and that Mick McCarthy is signing Peter Crouch on loan.
