Manchester United centre-back Michael Keane has revealed his aspirations ahead of the new season.

Keane, who spent the majority of the 2013/14 campaign on loan at Championship outfits Derby County and Blackburn Rovers last season, is keen on fighting for his future at Old Trafford rather than sealing a move to one of his suitors.

The 21-year-old, whose twin brother Will also plays for Manchester United, has featured in just three League Cup games since signing a professional contract with the north-west giants.

Blackburn are said to be keen on signing Keane on a permanent deal during the summer transfer window but the defender hopes to convince new Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal that he is worthy of a place in his first team squad.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Keane said on hoping to stay at Old Trafford: "That's the dream.

"I still think I've got a chance of making it at United.

"While I still think I've got that chance I will stay and try to prove myself.

"Hopefully we'll have a good pre-season and prove ourselves. If we do that, we'll have a chance to play."

Keane will be looking to take advantage of the fact that first choice centre-halves Rio Ferdinand and Nemanja Vidic will both leave the club at the end of June.
