Cantona to make sensational Man Utd return

The Sunday Express says Cantona is believed to be seriously considering Manchester United's long-standing offer to return to Old Trafford as a coach.

And with manager Sir Alex Ferguson in danger of losing his influential No2, Carlos Queiroz - wanted by Portugal to succeed Luiz Felipe Scolari - the Frenchman's emotional return would be perfect timing.

A close friend revealed: "Eric does fancy the idea of helping out with the coaching at a club like Manchester United.

"He has been enjoying himself appearing in and directing films and being involved in beach soccer but has always wanted to help produce a team in his style and knows that Sir Alex Ferguson would encourage him."
