The Dutch striker said "I am 32 in August" and despite ageing and winning the Premier League with United, "I still have the ambition to play for another eight years."

He accepts that "in a few years" he could "have to accept that I will no longer play at the very highest level" like he has done at Arsenal and United.

Van Persie feels "very, very fit" which means "playing in the first-team is very important" while he stays injury free.
