David Moyes could leave his role as Everton manager and become Sir Alex Ferguson’s assistant – before taking over the job after a year.

Odds have been slashed on the Toffees’ boss becoming the next manager at Old Trafford and the Daily Mail claim this is because of growing talk of Moyes becoming number two.

Ferguson insisted he was not planning on leaving Manchester United any time soon, but he is 71 years old and is unlikely to be in charge for many years more.

After the Red Devils secured their 20th league title last month and Ferguson expressed his excitement at the young squad he had at his disposal.

The report claims Manchester United would benefit greatly from having Ferguson’s successor work with him for a year to learn the ropes under the legendary boss.

Moyes’ contract at Everton expires in the summer and he is yet to confirm whether he will be staying on at Goodison Park beyond his current deal.
