Scholes ready to play another season with Man Utd

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has told Paul Scholes a new one-year deal is waiting for him to sign.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has told Paul Scholes a new one-year deal is waiting for him to sign.

Scholes, 37, discussed his comeback performances with Ferguson at an informal meeting last week, says The Sun.

Boss Fergie revealed statistics from recent games showed Scholes is averaging the same levels as he did 16 months ago.

They included a pass completion rate of 82 per cent, while his kilometres per game ranked him alongside Ryan Giggs and Michael Carrick.

Scholes is under no pressure from Ferguson or United to give an early answer but has promised a decision before the season ends.

The ex-England midfielder will speak further with his family before deciding, but has indicated the stats — and how quickly he has settled back into the side — have surprised even himself.

Fergie also confirmed the Old Trafford board has drafted a one-year deal and would love Scholes to play a further season.
