Manchester United legend Paul Scholes is ready to return to Old Trafford this summer, the Daily Star reports.

The former United midfielder is being tipped to return to the club in an ambassadorial or coaching role.

Scholes was in a meeting with previous manager Sir Alex Ferguson as well as ex-chief executive David Gill last week, with both still being heavily active as club directors.

The 38-year-old English midfielder worked temporarily as a Red Devils coach, but decided to take a break from the game to spend time with his family.

Paul Scholes retired from playing with Manchester United on two separate occasions.

He announced his first retirement on May 31, 2011, and instantly joined the United coaching staff.

However in the January of 2012, Scholes changed his mind due to Manchester United’s injury crisis that season.

He would play for another year and a half, finally deciding to retire on May 2013 after helping the Red Devils to their 20th league title.
