Summarizing, the alternatives are:
"I-want to-go" (infinitive as noun, direct object)
"I go+desire" (affix to show desire)
Why not "I want that I go"? Maybe with a subjunctive mood on "go"?
Or, to make things shorter, you could elide the tense markers and
pronouns and make them non-compulsory when context is clear.
