According to reports Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has agreed a settlement with the club after 29 years.

Giggs, 42, had a year left on his contract as assistant manager but new boss Jose Mourinho is expected to give Rui Faria that role.

Unable to reach an agreement over another possible position at the club, it is believed Giggs, who made a record 963 appearances for United, has decided to move on.

Ryan Giggs joined the Manchester United academy on his 14th birthday in 1988 and turned professional aged just 17.

The Wales-born winger won a record 13 league titles, two European Cups, four FA Cups and four League Cups to become the most decorated British player of all time.
