Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs reportedly had the chance to take the Valencia job recently, but opted to stay at Old Trafford instead, according to The Mirror.
The Mestalla outfit parted company with Nuno and have since appointed former Red Devils star Gary Neville on an interim basis until the end of the season.
However, the latest report suggests that the Spanish club had initially eyed the Welshman as a perfect replacement for the outgoing Portuguese coach.
The retired midfielder is said to have spurned an opportunity to move to the continent, instead preferring to stay as Louis van Gaal’s number two.
With the experienced Dutchman set to set aside at the end of next season, Giggs is in an excellent position to potentially take over as top dog at the historic club.
Giggs assumed the role on a short-term basis when David Moyes was sacked, with a train of thought that the club are grooming the Welshman as a future boss.
