Ryan Giggs will meet with Louis van Gaal in the Netherlands on Wednesday as Manchester United move towards finalising their new management team.
Dutch national coach Van Gaal, 62, is set to be appointed as United boss and will speak to Giggs about a potential coaching position.
Welshman Giggs, 40, ended the campaign as United’s interim manager following the dismissal of David Moyes in April.
Louis van Gaal major titles
- Ajax: Three league titles, Champions League, Uefa Cup, Uefa Super Cup
- Barcelona: Two league titles, Copa del Rey and Uefa Super Cup
- AZ Alkmaar: League title
- Bayern Munich: League title and DFB Pokal
Giggs had said he was unsure whether he would carry on playing next season.
Van Gaal is currently overseeing the Netherlands’ World Cup preparations at their training camp in Hoenderloo with Wednesday a designated rest day for the squad.
Giggs and United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward will go to the Netherlands for the talks, with the club keen to end their search for a replacement for Moyes.
A number of the staff who worked under both Moyes and Giggs during his four-match spell in charge, including Phil Neville, Chris Woods, Paul Scholes and Nicky Butt, are likely to leave the club.
United, who are due to release their third-quarter financial results on Thursday, finished seventh in the Premier League and will not be playing in European competition next season.
