Van Persie signed a four-year deal when he joined United back in 2012, and helped the club to win the Premier League title.
However, last season he struggled to shake off a series of injuries as the club dipped down to seventh place in the league, with many believing that he is set to make an exit during the upcoming transfer window.
But Van Persie’s father, Bob, insists his son will remain at United for the foreseeable future, but revealed the 30-year-old plans to return to his first club, Excelsior in order to see out his playing days.
“When his contract ends in Manchester, he’ll be 33. As long as he is fit enough – and I am sure he will be – he’ll stay in Manchester,” he said.
“Then, he will go back to Excelsior. Money will never be an issue.
“Robin is hyperactive. He was like that as a kid and will always be like that. He needs football to burn his energy and he will be like that for the rest of his life. So he’s got to look forwards.
“He’ll probably always be loyal to Excelsior, Arsenal and Manchester United. Those clubs are like home.”
