Giggs set for new United contract

Ryan Giggs looks set to be offered an extension to his contract at Manchester United after manager Sir Alex Ferguson told MUTV the Welshman will "play for another year".

Giggs' current contract expires in the summer

Giggs' current deal expires in the summer - as is the case with Rio Ferdinand and Paul Scholes - and it has been speculated whether the midfielder might call time on his career at Old Trafford, which started in 1990.

But, speaking after the 39-year-old played the full 90 minutes of United's 1-0 win over West Ham in the FA Cup on Wednesday, Ferguson hailed Giggs' longevity.

"He will play for another year," Ferguson told MUTV. "There are no discerning signs of tiredness or weakness in his game, his quality is still there and he has fantastic balance.

"He has the appetite for it and he is just an incredible human being."

When informed about his manager's comments, Giggs said: "I don’t feel like that now! I'm enjoying it more than ever at the moment, though. The FA Cup at Old Trafford... if you don't enjoy it you need to pack it in."

United’s most decorated player set his sights on winning a fifth FA Cup as he said it is a priority for the 11-time winners to regain a trophy they last lifted in 2004.

“We haven’t done as well as we should have done over the last 10 years,” he added. “We had a great record in the 1990s, we want to get to that final and have a chance of winning it.”

Giggs, Scholes, Darren Fletcher and - from his time at Arsenal - Robin van Persie are the only current United players to have won the competition and the veteran added: “There are so many players who have won a lot in that dressing room and haven’t won the FA Cup. We want to go far.”
