Van Persie Is Happy At Manchester United – Moyes
Manchester United boss David Moyes expects striker Robin van Persie to be given a new contract after he expressed his desire to stay with the club.
There had been rumours that the £24m signing was unhappy with life under Moyes and wanted a move.
Moyes said: “He is happy here and we are very pleased about that.”
Nertherlands international Van Persie scotched speculation about his future on Thursday night when he insisted he is content at Old Trafford.
The former Arsenal striker said he would like to extend his current deal beyond 2016.
A delighted Moyes added: “He has a couple of years on his contract and I’m sure that (an extension) is something the board will look at.”
