Manchester United could announce the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson after this weekend's home game against Swansea City.The Times says Ferguson's hip surgery, scheduled for later this summer, and other health problems related to the stress of the job have made his decision for him.

United are expected to delay the announcement due to rules of the New York Stock Exchange, where the club is listed.

However, sources close to the players say Ferguson is set to announce his retirement.
