TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - Robin van Persie has broken his silence on his future at Manchester United with a defiant riposte aimed at banishing rumours of his unhappiness at Old Trafford and discontent with manager David Moyes, as reported by Telegraph.

Van Persie, whose reaction to being substituted by Moyes during the 3-0 victory at West Bromwich Albion last Saturday added fuel to speculation that he was seeking a summer move away from the club, has spoken freely about his situation in a candid interview in United Review, United's official match programme, ahead of Sunday's crucial home game against Liverpool.

Despite strong interest from Juventus in the 30-year-old forward, Van Persie insists he is happy under Moyes at United and would even be prepared to extend his stay beyond the remaining two years of his contract.

"The truth is I'm very happy here at this club. I signed for four years and I'd be delighted to stay even longer, beyond the next two years I have left on my contract. I'm very happy with my team-mates and I'm very happy with my manager and his staff," stated Van Persie.
