Manchester United’s Robin van Persie fit to play ‘every week’

Robin van Persie says he can “go on for several years” amid speculation about his future following an injury-hit season for Manchester United.

The Netherlands striker, 31, made just three appearances in the last three months of United’s 2014-15 campaign as Louis van Gaal’s side finished fourth.

“I’m going to calmly sit down and consider everything,” said Van Persie, whose contract expires in 2016.

“Take note of my words. I feel 100% fit and have ambitions to play every week.”

Van Persie scored 30 goals in 48 matches in his first season for United after joining from Arsenal for £24m in 2012 but this year returned only 12 goals from 31 appearances.

Speaking in January, the Dutchman said he did not know if he would be staying at Old Trafford beyond his current deal.
