The Dutchman moved to Old Trafford last summer and made an immediate impact, firing a total of 35 goals in all competitions as the Red Devils reclaimed the Premier League title from local rivals Manchester City.
Although the Manchester clubs have largely dominated English football over the last two years, the latest Premier league betting suggests the upcoming campaign promises to be one of the most intriguing of recent times following the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson from the United hotseat and the return of Jose Mourinho to Chelsea.
David Moyes has been handed the task of replacing Ferguson and it’s been suggested by some punters who bet on football that the Scot’s failure to win a major trophy during his time at Everton could see United lack the killer instinct that they always had under his compatriot.
Despite being yet to do any real business, the Red Devils are expected to bring in a number of new stars to Old Trafford in the next few weeks in a bid to build a side capable of competing in Europe.
Van Persie is likely to be at the forefront of their challenge this season and says he and his team-mates are hungrier than ever to win yet more silverware for the club.
“I still have more years left and it's not like I'm saying, 'Yes, we won the league so that's me done'. I want more now. It makes me hungrier,” he told the Sun. "I was hungry last year but now I'm more hungry. We have a great bunch of players so we can win more and do better.
"Last season we won the league and that was great but this time we want to win the league and more as well."
