Manchester United are keen to speak to Paul Scholes over the possibility of a return to Old Trafford as the club look to restructure behind-the-scenes this summer.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was given assurances on his appointment that the club would have a structure in place by pre-season that would smooth what is set to be a testing transfer window.
United are yet to appoint a Director of Football but Metro.co.uk revealed earlier this week that Mike Phelan is in line to become the clubs first-ever technical director.
Though theres some way to go to finalising Phelans exact role given hes keen to retain a link to Solskjaers set-up, hes expected to become the first appointment of a new-look set-up.
However, United are keen to continue their overhaul and Metro.co.uk understands Scholes is being considered for a role in the new set-up.
United are yet to settle on a precise job description but they want a figure who understands the make-up of the club to assist in the decision-making process at board level.
The club have been looking at a number of former players to fill the role, including Darren Fletcher and Patrice Evra, as they want an appointment that can work with the new technical director to oversee recruitment.
Scholes spent time with Uniteds U19s side after his retirement and enjoyed the day-to-day aspect of coaching.
The 44-year-old has since taken his first managerial job with Oldham but left after a month in charge due to disagreements with the clubs board.
