Van Persie aware of Man Utd rumours: Only Arsenal for me

After signing his new contract, Arsenal striker Robin van Persie says there was no chance of him being tempted away by the likes of Manchester United.

"I believe in Arsenal as a club, in the fans, in the teams. I just love Arsenal, which is the main reason why I signed," he said.

"Sometimes you hear rumours, but my heart is with Arsenal.

"I just can't picture myself in a different shirt. I just can't see it now because I love this club so much.

"If you look at the last five years, look at the steps I have made every season, if you look at the support the boss and the whole club gave me, the fans gave me, my team mates gave me - this is the right decision."
