Manchester United will extend Ryan Giggs’ contract for another year – to take him through to the end of next season.
United officials will sit down with the Welsh winger within the month to renegotiate his £75,000-a-week contract.
Giggs, 33, has made 721 appearances and is just 38 away from Bobby Charlton’s record.
Boss Alex Ferguson has told the club’s board he believes the Welsh winger can play for at least another two years.
He is already the most decorated player in English football history – with nine titles – and has bagged 141 United goals.
But Giggs knows he will need to keep his high standards up with the likes of Nani now at the club.
He admitted: “Over the last few years the manager has bought young players as he looks to the future. Eventually these young players will be United’s future. The club never stands still and never will.”
