Van Persie told ELF Voetbal that his main focus was to ensure he was playing regularly in the lead up to next summer's European Championships in France.
"When I signed for United, I knew these kind of [reports] would appear," van Persie said.
"Next year is the European Championship. That tournament is going to play a big role in the choice I will make.
"I have to be in my best form [for Euro 2016]. But most important is the wish of my wife and children. Whatever I do Bouchra, Shaqueel and Dina Layla are the highest of my priorities. They have to be happy."
He added: "I was second highest scorer, behind Wayne Rooney, with 10 goals. But people don't seem to accept this. I think that is deserved, because it says a lot that Wayne is top scorer with 12 goals.
"In all the other top teams, there is a minimum of one player who makes more than 25 goals over all competitions. Not at United. That's the reality and I feel responsible for that."
