Veteran defender Rio Ferdinand remains determined to play on next season - but admits he has no idea if that will be at Manchester United.
The 35-year-old former England captain has been in and out of the side in a season of transition at Old Trafford, with his contract set to expire in the summer.
Indeed Ferdinand did not make the match-day squad for the final home game against Hull this week as interim manager Ryan Giggs gave a glimpse into the future.
Nemanja Vidic is set to leave the club this summer, and it remains to be seen what role loyal servant Giggs will take on, with Dutchman Louis van Gaal the leading contender to be appointed David Moyes' full-time replacement following the World Cup.
Ferdinand - who joined United from Leeds in July 2002 for a then record £30million - feels he still has plenty to offer.
"I am fit, I am healthy and I want to continue playing," said Ferdinand, who will be part of BBC's World Cup coverage team in Brazil.

Who might leave Manchester United this summer?
1/9 Rio Ferdinand
For years Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic were the meanest defence in the Premier League, but age and injuries has seen the partnership wilt. With Vidic now off, the partnership is over and it could be that both leave the club. The 35-year-old is out of contract in the summer and widely expected to leave. A lucrative move to the MLS is a possibility, with the former England international confirming his desire to continue his playing career.
2/9 Nemanja Vidic
Vidic has already confirmed he will join Inter Milan at the end of the season, and will make his Old Trafford farewell in Tuesday's Premier League clash with Hull.
3/9 Patrice Evra
Out of contract in the summer, the French left-back looks certain to leave. he arrived at United in 2006 and despite his form dipping in the season Manchester City claimed their maiden Premier League title, the 32-year-old has arguably shown his best ever form this term, including scoring some crucial goals. The summer pursuits of Leighton Baines and Fabio Coentrao indicated much about Evra's future, but a £30m move for Southampton's Luke Shaw could materialise in the summer.
4/9 Ryan Giggs
United's interim manager is still out of contract at the end of the season, and his future remains unclear given that the next manager in-waiting Louis van Gaal may not want Giggs on his coaching staff. Either way, it appears his playing career is finally coming to an end.
Despite signing a new long-term contract earlier this season, speculation over a move away from Old Trafford remains rife. Surely this summer the Portugal international will finally leave the club, with Juventus said to be willing to shell out £12m for his services.
Has moved on loan to Fiorentina until the end of the season and at his unveiling made it clear he wouldn't be returning to Old Trafford.
7/9 Javier Hernandez
The Mexican striker is understood to be frustrated by his lack of first team football. It was strongly rumoured that he would move in January but in the end he remained at Old Trafford. Whether United can retain him in the summer remains to be seen, particularly if he enjoys a good World Cup.
8/9 Robin van Persie
Rumours surfaced earlier this season that RVP was angered by the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson just 12 months after joining from Arsenal. United's former manager was a major influence on his decision to move to Old Trafford. With United failing to secure Champions League football for next season, the Dutchman could have more than one reason for wanting to depart.
9/9 Shinji Kagawa
The Japan international has failed to make an impact since joining from Borussia Dortmund and with the arrival of Juan Mata, the situation doesn't look like improving. The 24-year-old recently admitted his frustration at his form. Perhaps it could improve away from Old Trafford.
"I have spoken to a lot of mates of mine in the game and they all say the same thing - keep playing for as long as you can.
"The club at the moment is in a position where they can't really make any decisions about anything.
"For me to be saying I want to do this or that is irrelevant, because we have got to see who becomes the new manager and boxes will be ticked from there.
"I just want the best solution for the club. Whatever it is, then I will respect it. After that I am open to offers.
"But I would rather wait and see what happens at United and then there will be a decision to be made."
Ferdinand believes United must look to consign their "disappointing season" to the history books and move on under the new manager.
"There is no point harping on about what David Moyes did and what went wrong. We have got to turn the page," he said.
"You can't move forward if you keep looking back. A new manager will come in and he's the person we've got to get behind, to work with and make sure he gets it right.
"It is important everyone works together to continue the process of winning as that is what we are.
"We are a team that's won lots of titles and cups and we want to get back to that."
Ferdinand will join the likes of former England striker Gary Lineker and World Cup winner Thierry Henry and out in Brazil as a pundit, which he admits will offer a "strange" experience to be looking in from the outside.
Having played through the continual bitter disappointment of failure by the so-called 'Golden Generation', Ferdinand feels a reality check on expectations this summer could be just what is needed for Roy Hodgson's squad.
"It is a brilliant position for them to be in, they have been given almost a free hit to go there and to produce," he said.
"They have a great bunch of young players and I think attacking-wise it is the best condition we have gone into a tournament with for years, in terms of fitness, youth, fearlessness through age, and guys who have done well this season with their clubs.
"If they can replicate the form they have shown for their clubs in an England shirt in this tournament, then we are in for some exciting times."
