Boss Alex Ferguson wants to land the £20million-rated Arsenal skipper.
The Gunners do not wish to sell to a Premier League rival — but United hope for a compromise.
Rooney wants to pair up with Van Persie and said: “Of course, he’s a player I admire. He has been amazing for Arsenal over many years. Last season was probably his best, he scored a lot of goals.
“If he does come here, he’d be a great addition to the squad.”
Asked if he would work well with RVP, Rooney smiled: “I’d like to think so — but you’d have to ask the manager.
“There are a lot of forwards here already with myself, Welbeck, Chicharito and Berba is still here.
“So there are a lot of forwards fighting for a place here.”
Van Persie wants a move after becoming frustrated by Arsenal’s seven-year trophy drought.
And Rooney says the big target at United next season is to regain the title they lost to neighbours Manchester City in the final seconds of last season.
He said: “It’s a good opportunity for us now to bounce back.
“This is our chance to show everyone we’re a good team and capable of winning the league.
“That’s obviously our aim this season.”
