A select round-up of news relating to Manchester United…
Manchester United chief executive Ed Woodward and interim boss Ryan Giggs will reportedly fly to Holland today to meet with Louis van Gaal.
The Manchester Evening News claims the duo will meet with the 62-year-old, who is widely tipped to become the next permanent manager at Old Trafford.
Van Gaal is reportedly on a day off from his duties with the Holland national team, making it the ideal time for the United pair to potentially finalise a deal that many fans feel has been too long coming.
“I have looked after myself as well as I can to be as fit as I can for this tournament. I will be ready. I’m looking forward to it.”
The central defender will not be offered a new deal at Old Trafford, and Bruce said, “Rio has been a wonderful player. Who knows? If he fancies a game…”
It would be quite a coup for the Tigers but Ferdinand is likely to have a number of offers on the table, with talk of a switch to the MLS next season.
