Legend expected to announce Man United departure this week

GiggsManchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern are bracing themselves to say goodbye to a club legend, who could announce his departure imminently.

The Mirror says senior officials at Old Trafford expect Ryan Giggs to announce his departure from the club in the coming days, with the Welshman looking to embark on his own managerial journey.

Giggs has been assistant manager to Louis Van Gaal during the past two seasons and the plan was to see the former midfielder step up into the full-time job next season, when the Dutch boss was set to retire. However, the situation has changed.

Despite winning the FA Cup in May, United’s first trophy since Sir Alex Ferguson retired in 2013, Van Gaal was relieved of his duties shortly after and replaced by Jose Mourinho. Whilst Giggs was offered a role in United’s academy, it’s expected he will reject that offer and move on.

Giggs could take a sabbatical from football for a year, as he waits for the right position to become available, but our landlord feels he may have to work his way up from the bottom.

Will Giggs manage Manchester United one day? Let us know in the comments below!
