Manchester United striker Robin van Persie has revealed that Red Devils manager Louis van Gaal will spend £200 million on new players this summer in preparation for winning next season’s title.
‘United spent £200m on players last year and they are going to spend another £200m this summer so we will have a team that can compete for the title,’ he told the Mirror.
The striker’s comments come at a time he is being touted with a move to Italy after having received interest from several Serie A teams.
‘It is my ambition to play as many games as possible. I feel fitter than ever,’ he said.
‘And I know that the more games I play, the more it will help me prepare for the European Championships next summer.
‘I will take everything into consideration when I decide on my future and I know I have to be realistic about the situation.’
