The midfielder is still a key figure at Old Trafford, 17 years after making his debut for the club. He has got a cabinet full of awards and is still in the hunt for a Treble this season.
Winning the FA Cup, Premier League and Champions League would allow Scholes to bow out on a high but the 36-year-old claims he is still mulling over his options.
"I'll decide at the end of the season," Scholes said. "I really don't know what I am going to do yet. I've got these games to think about now and I will decide from there.
"People always say you should play as long as you can but there comes a time when you just can't physically do it. I'm wary of that. I just want to make sure it is done at the right time."
Scholes was a frustrated spectator as United made it past Chelsea in the Champions League on Tuesday and he admits it is not easy having to sit out games.
He said: "It is very difficult to accept (not playing every game) but the time comes when you know that you can't.
"You want to think like a 25-year-old, you like to think that you can play every game. But you can't. You just have to make sure you are ready for the odd 20 minutes here and there. It's hard to make that adjustment. It is not nice."
