Nevertheless, it seems like a better job awaits him at the worldwide level, as the former Welsh global has gone through an interview with the Wales national team for a managerial position, as per Sky Sports.

Coleman took Wales to the semi-finals of EURO 2016 but stepped down last November after they failed to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup.

Coleman left the Welsh team after failing to qualify for this summer's World Cup in Russian Federation and has since joined Sunderland.

Mark Bowen, Mark Hughes' assistant at Stoke until this month, has also interviewed for the role as well as Coleman's former assistant Osian Roberts, who has been described as the "most influential man in Welsh football".

Giggs is the first person to be formally spoken to, however, with the Daily Mail claiming that talks took place on Friday morning.

Giggs is thought to have backing by some former players in his quest for the Wales job and spoke about his interest last month.

But how does Malcom rank alongside the other best under-21 players in Europe? "He's a very good player", he told reporters. Should Sanchez move to United, it is likely to cause much anger among an already-frustrated Arsenal fanbase.

Wales have previously placed their trust in upcoming managers Mark Hughes and Gary Speed, who were 36 and 41 respectively when they were appointed, and now providing the interview went well the 44-year-old Giggs should be installed at the helm in time for Wales' next game against China in March.

"I played for Wales, I've said that I want to go back into coaching, and that is obviously one of the top jobs".

"Of course I'm interested", he said.

Former Wales global Carl Robinson, now Vancouver Whitecaps head coach, has also been under consideration having been urged to apply for the job by Aaron Ramsey and Gareth Bale.

Giggs will no doubt have picked up a lot of management skills during his time at United as Louis van Gaal's assistant and given his status as one of Wales' finest ever, it could be a sensible hire.
