Swansea have Man Utd great Giggs ahead of Bradley

Swansea City still have Ryan Giggs at the top of their managerial wish-list.

The Sun is reporting that the Welsh club are putting in place a plan to find a quality replacement for Francesco Guidolin, who appears to be on borrowed time at the Liberty Stadium.

Manchester United legend Giggs is being heavily linked with the job but it is also understood that former USA national team head coach Bob Bradley is a realistic option.

Swansea's new American owners, Jason Levien and Steve Kaplan, are eager for current Le Havre boss Bradley to be considered for the role which will soon be vacated by Guidolin following a poor start to the new Premier League season.

Giggs is chairman Huw Jenkins' first choice but Levien and Kaplan are eyeing Bradley, who has extensive experience in his homeland, with the US team, the Egypt national team and also in Norway with Stabaek and in France where he has been since November last year.

It is believed that Giggs would bring with him a ready-made assistant in the mould of Phil Neville while Swansea's US shareholders see LS Galaxy and US legend Landon Donovan as a possible accompaniment for Bradley.
