Rio Ferdinand has revealed he wants to continue playing for Manchester United next season.

Ferdinand has suffered an indifferent season at United and has been in and out of the starting XI under new manager David Moyes.

The defender and manager have seemed at odds at various points in the season and with Ferdinand's United career apparently coming to a close, he took a verbal swipe at the Scot earlier this season. The 35-year-old also declared United's disappointing first season under Moyes had made it difficult for him to go about his daily life.

However, while speaking as a pundit for BT Sport, Ferdinand stated he planned to continue playing next season - and hoped it would be at Old Trafford.

When asked about what his plans for next season are, Ferdinand said: "Hopefully still playing - I want to continue playing. I'm enjoying my football and my legs haven't given way yet.

"I want to continue - whether that be at Manchester United or somewhere else, depending what the club want to do. Time will tell, we'll have to wait until the end of the season.

"We'll do what we did last season - wait until the end of the season, get it sorted out and speak to see where we're at.

Ferdinand insisted he would love to stay at United, adding: "Of course - that's the dream. I'm living the dream and I'd like to continue [at United]. But we'll have to wait and see."
