The Dutch striker still has three years left on his Old Trafford contract.
Robin Van Persie admits he is eager to commit the rest of his career to Manchester United by signing a new contract.
The Dutchman scored 30 goals in his debut season at Old Trafford to fire United to the Premier League title and claim a second Golden Boot award in as many years, justifying his decision to leave Arsenal.
Van Persie now wants to extend his stay with the reigning champions despite still having three years left on his contract.
“I have three more years to go and I would like to stay longer,’ the 30-year-old told the Telegraph.
“I know, and I see people around me, making decisions where I think these guys will look back and say “was that a good one?”. I don’t want that.
“I want to play as long as possible at the highest level.”
The 30-year-old has acquired a taste for silverware after lifting his first league title last term, but insists United shouldn’t settle for just one trophy this season.
“That (winning trophies) is what it is all about,” he added. “Last year we got one trophy in four. Now we have to look at it from the opposite side.
“We have the chance to get five this year. How many do we get out of those five? In my opinion we should be able to win two or three.”
