Ryan Giggs set for Manchester United role

Ryan Giggs will reportedly be offered an opportunity to extend his stay at Manchester United with Louis van Gaal, who is set to be named the next permanent manager this week, ready to appoint the Old Trafford icon as one of his assistants.

The Manchester United board appointed Giggs as interim manager following the departure of David Moyes, and the Welshman conceded last week that he was unsure what the future would hold beyond the end of the season. But it is reported by The Guardian that Van Gaal wants Giggs in a senior coaching role, although it is unclear if he will be retained on the coaching staff.

Giggs has been on a one-year rolling contract for a number of seasons so will be out of contract in the summer. Should he not be offered a new deal or even decide himself to call time on his playing days, then Tuesday night will be the last chance Giggs will have to appear in a competitive fixture for Manchester United at Old Trafford.

The 40-year-old has not included himself in the matchday squad for either of the games he has presided over - a win against Norwich and defeat to Sunderland - but may find the appeal of one final swan song too difficult to resist.

Manchester United host Hull City in their penultimate game of the season, with a trip to Southampton to follow, and it remains to be seen if Giggs will afford himself a 963rd appearance for the club.
