The French international has caused some concern at Old Trafford with his reluctance to put pen-to-paper on fresh terms, as talks are continuing over his future.
Although the defender was rather speculatively linked to Liverpool, who tried to sign him before he joined United, and Milan, his first choice is to remain in Manchester.
"I can sign for any club in January," he stated after France's 3-0 win over Yugoslavia. "But I want to stay and play for United for my next contract so I hope I sign soon.
"I don't think there will be any problems.
"I want to achieve something. I have won two leagues and one Inter-Continental Trophy, so I want to win more trophies with United, and show everybody we are still at the top in English football, and in Europe as well."
The former Internazionale ace played well last season but his form has been a little patchy this term, perhaps due to the uncertainty surrounding his future.
