Ryan Giggs does not expect to encounter any problems in talks over a new contract with Manchester United.

Early negotiations have already begun over a deal that would extend Giggs´ first-team duties into an incredible 17th year, with both Sir Alex Ferguson and chief executive David Gill previously expressing optimism over the outcome.

The 33-year-old said: "We have had a brief chat, so hopefully it will get sorted out sooner rather than later. But there have never really been any problems ever with my contracts. Maybe two or three years ago, but even then it was not a massive one."
