The England captain told The Mirror newspaper that he would never leave Old Trafford.
He said: "United fans will never lose me. When I was going through the stage when everyone hated me after the World Cup in 1998, they were the ones who, along with my family, got me through."
" I would hate the fans to think they were losing me, because I would hope I've got a special relationship with them."
He added that he is close to signing a new deal and hopes it will be sorted before the World Cup.
The four-year deal is expected to be worth about £100,000 per week!
