Ferdinand has been restricted to just nine appearances for the club this season and looks to be on his way out at the end of the season when his contract comes to an end.

Both form and fitness has eluded the 35-year-old during this difficult campaign and now many believed that he will call time on his long and illustrious career, though he has assured doubters that he has different plans and is hopeful of being able to carry on for a little longer.

“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.”

United could possibly be in the market for two new defenders now as they have already lost Nemanja Vidic to Inter Milan, whom he will join this summer on a free transfer.
