Man Utd icon Scholes tells friends he's ready to retire

Manchester United midfielder Paul Scholes has decided to hang up the boots at the end of the season.

The Sun says the United legend, 38, has told people close to him this is definitely his final season.

Scholes first retired after the 2010-11 campaign, which saw United win a record 19th title.

He took up a role coaching the reserves but badly missed match days and training with the first team — and believed he still had something to offer.

Fellow veteran Ryan Giggs, 39, has also made only seven starts and could follow him into retirement.
