Manchester United's 'Class of 92' legends look set to return to the pitch, with reports suggesting that they will line-up in a clash against Salford City.

As reported by The Manchester Evening News, Ryan Giggs, Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt, Gary Neville and Phil Neville will don their boots once again as they take on the team that they purchased earlier this year at the AJ Stadium in August.

Indeed, the same source further reports that fellow 92 graduate David Beckham could also be invited to play alongside his former teammates, with the match obviously expected to attract a bumper crowd for the Evo-Stik First Division North club.

Given each player's sizable reputation with the 20-time English champions, one might expect such a match to invite considerable attention from Manchester United supporters - particularly if global superstar Beckham does indeed make an appearance.

The fabled 'Class of 92' have been in the headlines frequently lately, with Ryan Giggs having been appointed as Manchester United's interim manager following the abrupt departure of David Moyes in April.

Assisted by the trio of Scholes, Phil Neville and Butt, the group have had mixed fortunes in charge at Old Trafford, with wins over relegation-threatened Norwich City and Hull marred by a woeful home defeat at the hands of Gus Poyet's Sunderland on Saturday.

While many loyal fans would obviously not object to an iconic figure such as Giggs taking charge of first-team affairs on a full-time basis, such an opportunity looks increasingly remote with Louis van Gaal expected to be named as Moyes's permanent successor.

Just whether or not the experienced Dutchman would be potentially willing to retain the services of Giggs and co is currently subject to intense speculation.
