Veteran defender keen to stay at Old Trafford.
Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand has admitted that he wants to stay at the club beyond the end of the season but has conceded that the decision is not his to make, Goal.com reports.
The 35-year-old is out of contract this summer, and with United yet to offer him a new deal speculation over his future has been rife, with many claiming that he could be set to finally hang up his boots.
However, the former Leeds man has insisted that he would ideally like to stay at the club beyond the end of the current campaign.
Ferdinand has been restricted to just nine appearances this term as form and fitness have both evaded him at various points, but he believes that he still has something to offer at the top level.
“I want to continue playing – that’s the aim,” he told BT Sport.
“Whether that be at Manchester United or somewhere else – that is up to the club.
“I’m living the dream and want that to continue, but we will have to wait and see at the end of the season.”
With that in mind, United may be set to dip into the market for new defensive options as Nemanja Vidic has already agreed to join Inter Milan this summer.
