Ferguson is in no rush to sort out Scholes' United future but the chances of him carrying on has not been completely dismissed.
"It is not a time to make a judgment on that," said Ferguson. "Paul will know himself.
"He still has the desire to play. That has not stopped. He is still the best passer of the ball in the country. It is amazing.
"He has had one or two injuries over the years, quit last summer and came back.
"He made a fantastic contribution in the second half of the season and I just think he should keep doing what he is doing. He will sort the rest out himself."
