Ryan Giggs could be set to leave Manchester United after 29 years with the club

The Welshman is said to be upset having been overlooked for the manager's job at Old Trafford

A report in the Telegraph tonight suggests that Ryan Giggs could be on the brink of quitting Manchester United.

Giggs has been in Dubai on holidays contemplating his future and is due back in the coming days. He will hold talks with Jose Mourinho when he arrives back in Manchester to determine whether he will remain at the club he signed for on his 14th birthday.

Mourinho has Rui Faria as his assistant and has done since his time at União de Leiria in 2001. Faria has followed the Portuguese manager to Porto, Chelsea, Inter Milan, Real Madrid and back to Chelsea again before teaming up with him again at Old Trafford. It seems Giggs is keen to stay with the first team but Mourinho might not have room on the bench for the 42-year-old.

Giggs took over Manchester United when David Moyes was sacked in 2014 and is upset at being overlooked for the managerial position when Louis van Gaal was relieved of his duties. 

United's Under-21 manager Warren Joyce has been linked with a move to Blackburn and there could be an opportunity for Giggs to act as a liason between the youngsters and the first team.

The Welshman is keen to prove himself but is worried that he won't be assured of the manager's job if he does walk away now. There will be more to this story in the coming days when Giggs comes back from Dubai and has talks with Mourinho and the future at Old Trafford becomes a little clearer.
