News, views and rumours relating to Manchester United in the past 24 hours.
Interim manager Ryan Giggs remains ‘in the dark’ over his future at Manchester United with persistent rumours that Louis van Gaal will be appointed imminently to take charge on a permanent basis at Old Trafford.
Meanwhile, Rio Ferdinand’s appearance in United’s 1-0 defeat to Sunderland on Saturday may have been his last home game for the Red Devils. The English centre-back could be left out by Ryan Giggs who could feature himself against Hull this evening, according to reports.
Manchester United took on Hull City at Old Trafford earlier in the evening in their second to last game of the Premier League season, and bounced back from defeat last weekend. Giggs fielded a youthful side and there was great promise for the future as Tom Lawrence, Adnan Januzaj and James Wilson all performed commendably, with the latter even scoring twice!
United beat Hull by a 3-1 score.
Hull boss and United legend Steve Bruce is convinced United will ‘have a place’ for Giggs whomever the club appoints as manager in the future.
"I'm sure they'll find a space for him somewhere," he said. "He will be treated properly, I'm convinced of that. I don't think he'll leave."
The Guardian reports that Van Gaal could appoint Giggs as a ‘senior’ member of the coaching staff, ahead of former Netherlands star Patrick Kluivert who has been suggested as a possible assistant.
However, The Metro suggests Carlo Ancelotti has ‘rejected a £15 million offer’ to become the new manager at Manchester United.
Meanwhile, Old Trafford will prepare to bid farewell to captain Nemanja Vidic who will play for the last time at home as United skipper this evening, after confirming he will be leaving the club at the end of the season.
In transfer news, The Mirror suggests United could make a ‘double swoop’ for Germany stars Marco Reus and Thomas Muller this summer should they appoint Louis van Gaal.
