Sir Alex Ferguson has insisted he will be staying on as Manchester United manager next year, even if his team land another extraordinary double.

United have a big chance to win a record 19th league title this month, and contest a European Cup final with Barcelona at Wembley.

Some pundits have suggested this would be the ideal time for Ferguson to bow out, but the 69-year-old Scot has indicated he wants to carry on.

Several Sunday newspapers are reporting that Ferguson will be eyeing a 20th title, if United see off Chelsea in the final few games of this season.

And Ferguson still has his great obsession, the European Cup. He has recently admitted that United should have won the competition more than three times in their illustrious history.

The Mail on Sunday report that Ferguson is already planning his summer transfer moves, and will land his top target Wesley Sneijder if the Glazers bankroll the deal.
