Man Utd ace Van Persie: I want to play to 40

Manchester United striker Robin van Persie wants to match the longevity of Ryan Giggs. With 83 international caps already under his belt at the age of 30, Van Persie still has several years of playing at the highest level.

Moreover, he is Holland's all-time leading scorer having overtaken Patrick Kluivert.

"I want to play as long as possible for the national team," he said.

"If my body allows it, I'd like to play until I am 40.

"My goal is to play 100 caps, at least."
