Arsenal have not revealed the length of Van Persie's contract, but he hinted he wanted to play the rest of his top-class career at the Emirates.
"My heart is with Arsenal and I just can't picture myself in a different shirt," he said.
"I just can't see it now because I love this club so much. If you look at the last five years, look at the steps I have made every season, if you look at the support the boss and the whole club gave me, the fans gave me, my team-mates gave me - this is the right decision."
