Louis van Gaal could offer double Manchester United role to club star

Ryan Giggs would like to be offered a double role at the club once potential incoming manager Louis van Gaal is officially announced by the club, Mirror reports.

The 40-year-old midfielder wants to continue his playing career with the Manchester United, as well as be part of Van Gaal’s coaching staff.

Reports speculate that the two will meet up sometime near the end of this week and will hold talks regarding the future of United, with Giggs saying he is looking to forward to teaming up with the Dutch manager.

The Welshman has been playing the role of interim manager for the club’s final four games after the sacking of David Moyes but has also admitted to wanting the job on a full-time basis as well.

The United legend, who has made 963 appearances for the squad, is unlikely to be given the managerial reigns due to ongoing negotiations with the current Netherlands manager with a finalized deal looks set to be completed very soon.

Latest news regarding the appointment is still kept under wraps and even in the early hours of Tuesday morning, Van Gaal has refused to give any comments on his future with the Red Devils.
