Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has indicated he could prolong his career beyond 2011.

It was widely expected that the 35-year-old would retire at the end of the next campaign. He secured a one-year extension to his deal at the end of last season, when United lost their Barclays Premier League crown to Chelsea.

"I do not know if it will be my last season," he said. "I will just take every game as it comes."

He added: "If I am feeling okay and doing the job that the manager wants me to do then we will see how things are at the end of next season. Hopefully next season will be another good one for me."

Scholes and Ryan Giggs are the senior players in the United squad training in Chicago ahead of their five-match summer tour.

The temperature is expected to reach 33 degrees Celsius on Wednesday but, according to Scholes, United will reap the benefits later.

"Pre-season is always a busy time of the year for us because we're focused on getting set for the start of the season," he told

"We are doing lots of training in very hot conditions but hopefully that will stand us in a good stead for when the season begins.

"As far as next season goes we want to get back on track. Hopefully we'll have better luck with injuries and win some more trophies."
