QUERO ; DESEJO


Explanation:
I want means "eu quero" ou "eu desejo".
But remember for future reference that "want" as a noun means "falta", "carência" ... (want of spirit = falta de coragem. desânimo).
Anyway, good luck.

neutral  Doreen Carre: But one would have to have more context... In fact, if it is related to the next question by the same asker, 'pretendo' wouldn't have the same impact...
