Paul Scholes has hinted he would like to help Manchester United to a 20th league title amid doubts over his Old Trafford future.

Speculation has surfaced the veteran midfielder could call time on his illustrious United career this summer after celebrating a record 19th title win with the club.

The 36-year-old has been offered a one-year extension with the Red Devils but has refused to confirm whether he wants to accept it or not.

Scholes was giving little away about his future when he attended United's Premier League trophy parade on Monday, but revealed his thoughts have already drifted to further league success.

"The challenge will always be to get the next one. This one is out of the way now," he said.

"We will celebrate it today, have a nice summer, then think about winning the next one."

Achievement

He added: "Reaching 19 titles is not something you ever think about. All you want to do is win something.

"To go on like we have done is a great achievement. Now we want to stretch our lead even more."

Scholes' United team-mate Wayne Rooney has also turned his attention to lifting another title next year, and insists the team cannot afford to dwell on Saturday's UEFA Champions League final defeat to Barcelona.

"Winning the league is a massive achievement," he said. "We have to forget about what happened on Saturday and move on.

"The idea now is to win the 20th. We will be fighting hard to make sure we are there again next season."
