Ryan Giggs has been offered the chance to continue his coaching education under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United, following the sacking of Louis van Gaal.

A story on sundayworld.com earlier this month revealed that Mourinho was planning to include a United legend in his Old Trafford backroom staff when his arrival at the club was confirmed and now Giggs is reported to be 'weighing up' a proposal to retain a key role in the club's new set-up.

Giggs is believed to have made it clear that he would not be interested in working in a Mourinho set-up, at a time when he was keen to promote his own claims to take over from Van Gaal as United manager.

Yet now that Mourinho's arrival at Old Trafford is set to be confirmed, widespread reports are claim that Giggs is weighing up his options and may be tempted to extend his enduring stay at the club.

Giggs has served a Van Gaal's assistant for the past two season, but has rarely offered any public comment on the brand of football that was being promoted by the Dutchman.

There were suggestions on Sunday that Giggs was preparing to leave United along with the outgoing coaching staff, but confirmation of the end of his time at the club did not come with the statement confirming Van Gaal's exit.

It may be that Giggs decides he now needs to leave the club he has been assosiated with throughout his record breaking career to further his own desire to be become a top manager, with his future set to be resolved in the coming days.
