Rene Meulensteen is in line for a return to Manchester United.

The Daily Express says he could be brought out of the cold and make a shock return to Manchester United as part of Louis van Gaal's coaching staff.

Meulensteen is thought to be under consideration to be part of Van Gaal's coaching team and it is thought his return would be welcomed by Sir Alex Ferguson, now a United director.

Though Patrick Kluivert had been in the frame to become the No.2, it is expected he will now be overlooked for the job.
