Cape Town - With his own future in doubt, Robin Van Persie says Manchester United will spend big on player recruitment this summer.
"United spent £200m on players last year and they are going to spend another £200m this summer so we will have a team that can compete for the title," the Dutch striker told the Daily Mail.
Van Persie may be one of the players to make way for a new strike partner for Wayne Rooney with speculation increasing that the Dutch star could complete a move to the Serie A with Juventus and Lazio both interested.
The 31-year-old striker's exit could be on mutually beneficial terms as the player seeks regular game time, something that he will not be guaranteed next season in Manchester.
"It is my ambition to play as many games as possible (next season). I feel fitter than ever," Van Persie said.
"And I know that the more games I play, the more it will help me prepare for the European Championships [in France] next summer.
"I will take everything into consideration when I decide on my future and I know I have to be realistic about the situation."
Last season, Manchester United signed Angel di Maria, for a club record £59.7m, and Ander Herrera, Luke Shaw, Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind.
The Red Devils also brought Radamel Falcao to the club on loan for a reported fee of £6 million but opted against making the deal permanent after the Colombian's poor season at Old Trafford.
