Robin van Persie says family will decide his Manchester United future

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has revealed that family will decide whether he stays at Old Trafford next season.

The Old Trafford star has been linked with a move away from Manchester United this summer after an injury hit season at the club last term.

The 32-year-old Dutch international is still targeting a place in the Netherlands' squad for Euro 2016 so first-team football is a consideration.

But that comes after what is best for his family.

"That tournament [Euro 2016] is going to play a big role in the choice I will make," Van Persie said as reported by the London Evening Standard.

"But most important is the wish of my wife and children. Whatever I do, my wife Bouchra and children Shaqueel and Dina Layla are the highest of my priorities. They have to be happy."

With Radamel Falcao out of the picture next season, van Persie should in theory have plenty of opportunities to rekindle the form he showed in his first season at Old Trafford.

Last season he was restricted to 25 starts in all competitions although he still managed to reach double figures in the Premier League.

An ankle injury suffered against Swansea in February hobbled him throughout the remainder of the campaign but during that period rumours started to surface suggesting he could follow Falcao out of Old Trafford.

What do you think Manchester United fans - should he stay or go?
