Manchester United striker Robin van Persie says first-team football is a must ahead of next summer's European Championship in France.
The Dutchman continues to be a question mark ahead of this summer's transfer window with a number of Serie A clubs ready to make a move according to reports in Italy.
The former Arsenal man is ready to stay at Old Trafford but only if boss Louis van Gaal can promise him regular first-team football.
"When I signed for United, I knew these kind of [reports] would appear," van Persie told ELF Voetbal.
"Next year is the European Championship. That tournament is going to play a big role in the choice I will make.
"I have to be in my best form [for Euro 2016]. But most important is the wish of my wife and children.
"Whatever I do Bouchra, Shaqueel and Dina Layla are the highest of my priorities. They have to be happy.
"I was second highest scorer, behind Wayne Rooney, with 10 goals.
"But people don't seem to accept this. I think that is deserved, because it says a lot that Wayne is top scorer with 12 goals.
"In all the other top teams, there is a minimum of one player who makes more than 25 goals over all competitions. Not at United. That's the reality and I feel responsible for that."
