Dutch striker Robin van Persie is determined to achieve "greatness" with his new club Manchester United.

The 29-year-old, who completed his move from Arsenal to United on Friday, could make his debut alongside Wayne Rooney when United take on Everton away on Monday.

"Of course I'd love to play with Wayne," he said. "I've said many times before he is a world-class player all-round.

"When I look at players, I like to see they can adapt to everything, and he can score goals and make assists, and he works hard.

"Scholes and Giggs are world-class and have been proving it for 20 years now. That had a big impact, definitely. I'd like to say we are all in it together to achieve greatness. Every single player is as important."

Van Persie finished as the top scorer in the Premier League last season with 30 goals for Arsenal.
