Giuseppe Rossi is desperate to become a United regular, but accepts he could spend next season elsewhere.

Sir Alex Ferguson has had enough on his plate with the battle between Louis Saha and Ruud van Nistelrooy, without the youngster banging on his door.

Rossi last played when he scored twice in the FA Cup replay win over Burton Albion in January.

The 19-year-old needs to play more first-team football next term and Ferguson could be tempted to loan him out.

Rossi: ‘My aim and my goal is to stay here and play with United.

‘If I could achieve that, it would be great. But, if there is no space in attack for me here, I guess the best move would be to go out on loan somewhere to gain experience.

‘I have spoken to a few of the lads who have been on loan. They have been enjoying it and doing well and when they come back they will be fighting for a first team place, so that is something to bear in mind.

‘It would be nice to play in the last couple of games. We are almost secure in second place anyway, so if we don’t beat Chelsea, maybe the manager might play a few youngsters in the final two games. It is just a case of wait and see.

‘The tour to South Africa does offer another opportunity to perform. We will be playing in front of big crowds and obviously the manager and all the first-team coaching staff will be there too.

‘First-team wise, not much has happened for me since the Burton Albion game, so at the moment it is about taking every opportunity I get to remind the manager what I can do.

‘Everyone wants to go out to Old Trafford and play with the best players. It is the goal of everyone. You just hope your dream will come true.’
