Ferdinand, who has struggled with a series of injuries over the last few seasons, has two years to run on his current deal but hopes to persuade manager Sir Alex Ferguson he deserves a longer stay at United.

"I want to finish my career at United," the 32-year-old told the Sunday Telegraph. "I have two years on my contract, and if the manager sees that I am fit enough, a four-year deal at that age would be great."

United signed former West Ham defender Ferdinand from Leeds United for £30 million in 2002 - which was a new world record fee for a defender - and has won four Premier League titles with the Red Devils.

The centre-back limped off during United's final Champions League group match against Valencia on Tuesday with a hamstring injury but hopes to be fit for Monday's Premier League clash with Arsenal.
