Rio Ferdinand eyes new Manchester United contract

Rio Ferdinand hopes to clinch a new contract that would make Manchester United the last club of his career.

The England defender still has two-and-a-half years to run on his £130,000-a-week deal, but admits he is keen on an extension that would be the final major contract of a glittering career.

The 32-year-old, however, admits he may have to prove his fitness after two seasons hit by niggling injuries.

'I want to finish my career at United,' Ferdinand 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.'
