Former Manchester United coach Rene Meulensteen has been linked with a return to the club to work under Louis van Gaal, although there have since been reports to dismiss this assertion.
The story hardly came from the most traditional of sources, with Michael Gray, the former Sunderland player and now a media pundit, breaking the news via his official Twitter account.
It was claimed by Gray that Meulensteen was "on his way back" to Manchester United, something described as "great news" for the club.
However, Sky Sports have cited their own sources - of which Meulensteen himself appears to be one - to dispel this speculation, so it would appear that one of Sir Alex Ferguson's closest allies will not be recruited to help the club's latest manager.
Meulensteen left Old Trafford following the departure of Ferguson and, although David Moyes claimed he made an offer to keep the Dutchman at the club, the Dutchman denied this was the case.
He went on to join Fulham as deputy to Martin Jol, a move that clearly undermined the manager, and was moved into the top job once the former Tottenham boss had been sacked.
However, Meulensteen was chopped after only 17 games in charge and, despite the appointment of Felix Magath, Fulham were unable to avoid relegation from the Premier League.
He does, however, maintain a reputation as an excellent coach, with Robin van Persie in particularly having raved about Meulensteen's training sessions during their time spent together with Manchester United.
