Ryan Giggs’ 29-year spell at Manchester United is nearing an end.
The player-turned-coach is planning to meet with Jose Mourinho next week to inform the United boss of his intention to exit as he pursues a career in management.
Giggs had been told by United chiefs that he could create his own role at the club but Mourinho’s refusal to have the Welshman as his assistant leaves little room for Giggs to have a job that he is satisfied with.

The Mirror report that the 42-year-old is planning a face-to-face meeting with the Portuguese to tell him that he’s leaving.
It means the United legend, who made 963 appearances and won 13 Premier League titles as a player, will leave Old Trafford.
Rui Faria, who has followed Mourinho since he was the manager of Portuguese club Uniao de Leiria, is expected to join him in Manchester.
Giggs has spent the past three seasons under the tutelage of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal and is now believed to be interested in managing in the Championship.
That is according to the Daily Mail. Giggs was linked with the vacant Nottingham Forest post but those rumours quickly died.
There’s no doubt that United fans would love to see Giggs return to the club one day with the official title of manager.
