It has been reported that Manchester United interim boss Ryan Giggs remains in the dark over his future.
Holland coach Louis van Gaal is in talks about the manager’s job at United.
The Daily Mail claims that the Welshman has already had one meeting with United chief executive Ed Woodward. Predictably, that summit ended without any guarantees.
Van Gaal is preparing to bring a clutch of trusted lieutenants to Old Trafford as part of his coaching staff.
Giggs is understood to be aware of this likelihood and weighing up his options.
“‘Ryan doesn’t want to be a spare part in any set-up,” said a source.
“If he is there, he will want to be there as an integral part of a team. He doesn’t want to be there just because he is called Ryan Giggs.
“If he is offered a role he thinks is right then he will take it. If he doesn’t then he won’t.”
