ROBIN van Persie has delivered a huge, if surprising, vote of confidence to David Moyes and claimed that he may well end his career with Manchester United.

Despite feverish speculation about his relationship with Moyes and the possibility that he could re-sign for Arsene Wenger during the summer, the Dutchman has made a big statement of intent about his future.

“Last time I checked, my head was still attached to my body,” van Persie said. “So I’m the only one who knows exactly what I’m feeling and that is not what I or the fans have been reading.

“The truth is I’m very happy here at this club. I signed for four years and I’d be delighted to stay even longer, beyond the next two years I have left on my contract. I’m very happy with my team-mates and I’m very happy with my manager and his staff.

“I’ve been a professional footballer for 12 years now and there’s no doubt I’m learning new things and progressing with David Moyes,” Van Persie said.
