The Scotland international is set to complete a move to West Ham United but will definitely be returning to the club in a coaching capacity once he retires
It turns out that although Louis van Gaal has allowed to let Darren Fletcher leave Old Trafford as a free agent in a bid to easily find a club that guarantees him sufficient playing time, it is clear that the love story between the player and the club he has known all his life is not over.
The holding midfielder is nearing a move to West Ham United and is expected to put pen to paper on a three and a half year contract with the London club.
And although he leaves United with the feeling that he could have achieved even more, the player is still keen to return one day and become part of the club’s coaching staff. Moreover, former teammate and current assistant manager Ryan Giggs has also told Fletcher to return to Manchester United once he retires and has told him that as long as he wants it, there will always be a place for him at Old Trafford.
