Ryan Giggs has showed no signs of letting up this season despite being 37.
With both Gary Neville and Paul Scholes calling time on their careers last season it had been thought that this would be the midfielder’s last season but with the form he has been displaying why should he retire?
With goals and assists aplenty the Welshman continues to draw praise despite being in the autumn of his career.
Giggs turns 38 in November but feels he has what it takes to continue playing until he is at least 39 and is seeking a new deal according to an interview he gave to an Italian publication.
Giggs told calciomercato.com,
“After Christmas I will go to [Sir Alex] Ferguson’s office and we’ll talk about my renewal.
“I have a wonderful relationship with him. He’s an exceptional person. He is always the first to arrive in the morning and is always willing to listen.
“I have spoken to him for a few minutes about extending my contract for another year.
“I want to play again, I care for nothing more than playing for my team.”
Going off form, Giggs definitely looks a likely candidate for a new deal but Sir Alex is likely to wait until closer to the end of the season before making any decisions.
