Ryan Giggs is being lined-up as the man to replace Manchester United manager David Moyes - if he's relieved of his duties before the end of the season.
The Scot has endured a nightmare first season in charge of the Red Devils, with European qualification now a long shot following yesterday's 2-0 defeat to Everton left the champions languishing in seventh-place in the Premier League table.
That defeat appears to have been the last straw for the Manchester United owners, with The Daily Mail reporting that the former Toffees' chief will lose his job at the end of the season.
The paper goes on to report that Moyes could even leave before the end of the day if 'the situation comes to a head', and club legend Giggs is in-line to take charge of first team duties until the end of the campaign if required.
40-year-old Giggs has been with Manchester United for over two decades, making his league debut in 1991 and enjoying unprecedented success during the Sir Alex Ferguson era at Old Trafford.
However, the managerial legend's departure has coincided with a dip in form for the Red Devils, and Moyes' win percentage record of just under 53 in all competitions does not appear to be enough to keep him in the job.
With the Glazers ready to pull the trigger, it's a Manchester United legend who appears to be on the brink of taking charge.
