A couple of weeks ago, James Ducker wrote a story which detailed how disillusioned with Louis van Gaal was, nominally over the treatment of James Wilson, who went on loan to Brighton and then started scoring.

A while before then, Paul Scholes - Giggs' mate in the Class of 92 - started laying into the conservative approach of the United manager, and you would imagine there would have been conversations between the two men about their lives and opinions on United, even if it wasn't a plan between the two of them. Giggs has looked barely interested on the sidelines for a year now, rarely celebrating late victories or successes.

Now, it seems like Giggs will have his chance to leave his frustrations  behind, as the Mirror report that he is interested in taking over Swansea City, who recently sacked Garry Monk. It would be an easy way of cutting ties with United, gaining experience in management, and make any disagreements easily covered up rather than come to a head.
