Paul Scholes is under consideration to take the reins at Salford FC if Ryan Giggs and Gary Neville complete their takeover of the Manchester-based club.

According to the Daily Mail, Scholes is on a shortlist of candidates to take over as first-team manager with Giggs and Neville close to reaching a deal to take control of the club.

Talks between Salford and the two Manchester United legends have reportedly reached a settlement, with an announcement expected today.

It's unclear how much money Giggs and Neville are pledging to Salford, but their experience and connections in football could be useful in attracting big-name sponsors to the semi-professional Northern Premier League outfit.

Scholes is not part of the David Moyes coaching set-up at United, and the report claims he is certain to play some part at Salford, whether or not that is as first-team boss.

He was spotted taking in a Salford FC home game earlier this year alongside Giggs, Neville and Nicky Butt. And he appeared as a pundit on Sky Sports during their recent United versus Manchester City broadcast on Tuesday night.

Giggs and Neville have a number of off-the-field ventures together, including Cafe Football at Westfield Stratford City in London and Hotel Football, which is currently undergoing construction outside Old Trafford.

Neville also helps out Roy Hodgson on the England coaching staff while Giggs is still playing for United, although this season is expected to be his last.
