Ryan Giggs will quit Manchester United if Jose Mourinho takes charge

There's plenty of talk about Jose Mourinho's protracted move to Manchester United this morning.

The Times are carrying a story this morning claiming that the Red Devils have asked the Special One to wait even longer to find out whether they'll pull the trigger, fire Van Gaal and offer him a job at Old Trafford.

As it stands, Manchester United are still in with a chance of a top four finish with two games remaining, and have made it to the FA Cup final where they will take on Crystal Palace - and that appears to have been enough to stop executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward from making a decision.

Now the Sunday People are carrying an interesting side-note to the saga, which involves the future of club legend Ryan Giggs.

The Welshman has been working under Van Gaal for the last two seasons with the aim of taking over the managerial hotseat from the Dutchman when his three-year contract expires.

However, the appointment of Mourinho would put an end to that plan, and the Mirror say it would prompt Giggs - Manchester United's record appearance holder - to leave the club and seek employment elsewhere.

The paper adds that Giggs' Class of '92 mates, Gary and Phil Neville, have urged their former colleague to spread his wings and gain experience outside the Old Trafford bubble.

Phil initially moved into full-time coaching with Valencia, before he was joined by Gary who briefly took over as manager of the Spanish club this season.

Whether Giggs' leaving Manchester United this summer would ruin his chances of ever taking over as manager in the future remains to be seen.
