Cape Town - Robin Van Persie says he his relaxed about his Old Trafford future and has hinted that he will not be looking to leave in the summer.

The Mirror report that Robin Van Persie is not concerned about his Manchester United future.

The British publication believe that Manchester United's manager Louis van Gaal is willing to listen to offers for the 31-year-old Dutch striker.

The player himself is not getting drawn into speculation regarding his future. 

“Am I worried?” said van Persie.

“No, I’m totally relaxed. I have a contract with this club until 2016.

“Things could change now, but that all depends on Manchester United not me. Believe me, I’m relaxed – I’m not going to be part of a puppet show.

“In August I’m 32. But I still have the ambition to play for another eight years.

“In a few years’ time I may have to accept that I will no longer play at the very highest level. I don’t think that moment is coming now. I still feel very, very fit."

Van Persie has year left on his current Manchester United contract and scored just 10 goals this term for the Red Devils.

The Dutch striker has been linked with a cut-price move to the Serie A with Lazio, Roma and Juventus all monitoring the player, according to reports.
