Ryan Giggs has played down suggestions that he could end his career with a spell in Major League Soccer.

The Manchester United veteran was reported to be considering following former Old Trafford team-mate David Beckham in moving to the United States when he finally decides to bring the curtain down on his record-breaking career with the Red Devils.

But unlike Los Angeles Galaxy midfielder Beckham, Giggs has suggested that when he decides to leave United it will probably be to hang up his boots.

"Becks is probably the biggest footballer worldwide and he's still playing for England's national team so it's hard not to respect the quality of MLS," he said from United's pre-season tour to North America in Chicago.

"Being in America you have a great lifestyle – good for raising a family – and the play is getting better.

"I still have a year left with Manchester United. After that maybe I'll be too old."

Giggs has scored 155 goals in a club record 838 appearances for the Red Devils.

The 36-year-old midfielder will line up for his 18th season in the United first team next month.
