Having stated that he does not intend of signing a new deal at The Emirates stadium, Van Persie’s future remains undecided, but what is certain is that United, Man City as well as Juventus are in the hunt for his signature.
Turin is said to be his preferred destination but with Sir Alex confirming that he is very much interested in the Dutch striker, we could see Van Persie end up at Old Trafford and it is a move that Mills believes would be best for him.
Despite City beating United to the title last term, Mills believes United are a bigger club than City and offer him the better chance to win honours in Europe.
Speaking to the BBC, Mills said:
“Manchester United are still, in terms of club, bigger on a worldwide basis.
“Manchester City are still up and coming.
“In terms of challenging for the Champions League, if that’s what Van Persie really wants, I think Manchester United would be the better option for him.”
