Ryan Giggs set to leave Manchester United; odds tumble on his next club

Ryan Giggs is set to reject Jose Mourinho's offer to remain at Manchester United - and he could have his next destination lined up already.

The Red Devils legend has spent the last two seasons working under former boss Louis van Gaal following his retirement. However his path to the top job is now blocked following the appointment of Mourinho and the Sunday People are reporting that he has decided to quit.

The paper adds that Giggs could even announce his decision to leave Old Trafford in the next few days, having pondered his future since Mourinho was announced as Van Gaal's successor in the aftermath of Manchester United's FA Cup win against Crystal Palace.

In an interesting twist, while the People say that Giggs is considering taking a break from the game before taking on his next role - bookmakers have dramatically slashed the odds on him taking over at Nottingham Forest.

The 42-year-old was previously a 33/1 outsider for the role at the City Ground, but has tumbled to 8/1 over the last 24 hours.

Former Chelsea maestro Gianfranco Zola is currently the favourite to take over at Forest, but the shortening of odds for Giggs, now fourth favourite, could well indicate that he is very much in the running.

It seems as though Mourinho's decision to bring in his own coaching team tipped Giggs towards the exit, as it would mean that the club legend would have had to accept a reduced coaching role for next season.

Whether the rumours prove to be correct, or whether Giggs has decided to take a step away from the game, one thing seems to be certain - the man who played more than 900 games for Manchester United is on his way out of the club.

Do you think Manchester United should have made Ryan Giggs their manager over Mourinho?
