Gary Neville could extend his career at Old Trafford after it emerged on Thursday night that Manchester United have offered their captain a new one-year deal.

Despite speculation that Neville would not be offered an extension, Sportsmail can reveal that it is the player who is unsure whether or not to prolong his stay at the club into a 19th year.

United have tabled the same one-year deal they have already agreed with Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes, and talks are planned for next month, when Neville will turn 35.
