"I want to continue playing - thatâ€™s the aim," he told BT Sport. "The legs havenâ€™t given way yet.
"Whether thatâ€™s at Manchester United or somewhere else depends on what the club want to do.
"Weâ€™ll have to wait and see at the end of the season. Weâ€™ll do what we did last season - speak and see where weâ€™re at."

"Iâ€™m living the dream and want that to continue."
