Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has declared that retirement is far from his thoughts.
United are willing to listen to offers for the former Arsenal striker, 31, who has struggled since his 30-goal debut season at Old Trafford.
But he said: “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.
“Playing in the first-team is very important for me. This is why I will probably step down one level when I am 36 or 37. But not now.”
