Manchester United striker, Robin Van Persie says he remains unsure as to whether he will be offered a new contract at Old Trafford.

Speaking to BBC Sport, the Dutchman said, “It is not up to me – for the moment I am staying here for another 18 months,” said the 31-year-old.

“That is it really. I can’t look into the future. I don’t know what is going to happen after that. We shall have to wait and see.”

His tally of eight goals in 21 appearances in 2014-15 means he is unlikely to rival his totals – 30 and 18 goals respectively – from his previous two seasons after joining for £24m from Arsenal in 2012.

With his contract up at next summer, Van Persie said: “I have played something like 20 games and I have scored eight goals. I am not happy with that.”

If the former Arsenal man doesn’t find his goalscoring form soon, will he face risk of losing his place under Van Gaal and be ousted from the United side?
