After injury cut short his initial loan spell at Yeovil Town, Johnstone ended the campaign with Rovers, where he made 18 league appearances and kept regular goalkeeper Ross Turnbull out of the side.
The 21-year-old impressed during his time at the Keepmoat Stadium but was unable to prevent Paul Dickov's side from dropping into the third tier, a league he would be reluctant to play in.
"I'd like to be playing in at least the Championship next season," he told the Sheffield Star.
"I've done well at that level this season so it would be best for me to at least stay at that level.
"If Rovers had stayed up then I would definitely have been interested in coming back, if United were happy with that.
"Going to Doncaster and playing so many games was brilliant for my development and I want to kick on from that next season."
However, Johnstone remains uncertain as to where he will play his football next season as he waits to see what Louis van Gaal has planned for him at Old Trafford.
"I don't really know what is happening with my future at the minute because of the change of manager at United," he said.
"There's going to be a lot of changes over the summer and I'm sure the new manager will want to assess everything before any decisions are made."
