Van Persie enjoyed a stellar debut campaign with the Old Trafford outfit, collecting a second successive Golden Boot prize as he fired United to the Barclays Premier League title.
It justified the Dutchman's decision to leave Arsenal for a major domestic rival.
And, speaking to former United European Cup winner Paddy Crerand in an exclusive interview for MUTV, Van Persie revealed he intends to stick around for a while.
"I have three more years to go and I would like to stay longer," the 30-year-old said. "I know, and I see people around me, making decisions where I think these guys will look back and say 'was that a good one?'. I don't want that.
"I want to play as long as possible at the highest level."
Winning trophies is a key motivation for Van Persie, who had not won anything at Arsenal since their FA Cup final victory over United in 2005.
Already he has added the Community Shield to his collection.
And he does not feel United should be settling for that.
"That (winning trophies) is what it is all about," he said. "Last year we got one trophy in four. Now we have to look at it from the opposite side.
