    All I want ..

    Dear teachers,
    All I want is for him to return safe.
    All I want is that he return safe.
    All I want is his returning safe.
    Are three above sentences correct? And they have the same meaning?
    Thanks.

    All I want is for him to return safely.
    All I want is that he return safely.

    All I want is his returning safe.
    Even using the adverb again, "safely", we wouldn't express it that way. We might say, " All I want is his safe return."
