I don't think he knew anything about his future. This being the Master around the time of The Deadly Assasin (I'd argue after).
No, he does know at least a little about his future; he specifically alludes to the fact that he'll eventually steal the body of Nyssa's father.
Nyssa Mentions meeting the master on Logopolis, and a minute later the Master who had been eavesdropping says something like "From what I have just heard, we will meet in your future."

The Master had a sixty second lead time to use the foreknowledge that Nyssa had known a version of him for years, but it amounted to nothing.
