Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal is unlikely to hand Paul Scholes a permanent position at Old Trafford next season, according to The Daily Mail.
The report has suggested that Scholes' chances of being handed a deal with the club deteriorated after his criticism of Wayne Rooney and United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward. Writing in his column for Paddy Power, Scholes insisted that Woodward has 'an awful lot to prove this time that he's good enough at his job' in regards to this summer transfer window.
After United's disastrous season under David Moyes last term, Ryan Giggs, who took temporary charge of the club for their final four Premier League fixtures of the season, handed Scholes a role alongside him. The ex-England international acted as temporary assistant manager at United, as the club picked up two wins from their final four games of the season.
Before his temporary role under Giggs, Scholes linked up with Nicky Butt as he played a role in the progression of the Red Devils' youngsters. Butt, meanwhile looks set to stay at the Theatre of Dreams under the new regime, but Scholes' future is far from clear.
It remains to be seen as to whether Van Gaal will speak with the United legend regarding any potential role, but it now looks more likely that he will bring in some of his own men next season.
Phil Neville also faces an uncertain future at the Theatre of Dreams, with United yet to comment on his position at the club. The ex-Manchester United player played a key role under David Moyes last term, but could still be shipped out under the new regime.
Since Scholes' retirement in 2013, United have struggled in the middle of the park. However, fans of the club will be excited by new signing Ander Herrera, who looks set to play a key role next season.
Manchester United fans will be hoping the new signing from Bilbao strikes up a fine relationship with Michael Carrick next term, as the Red Devils look to get back to their best under Van Gaal.
It certainly looks set to be an exciting future Manchester United, as they look to put last season's poor showing behind them. Herrera looks set to be followed to the Theatre of Dreams by a number of other stars, as United look to make an immediate return to elite European football.
