Paul Scholes in managerial talks with Manchester based club

Manchester United legend Paul Scholes could soon make a return to management after holding talks with League Two side Oldham Athletic, over a year since missing out on the same job.

According to reports Scholes is in pole position to land the job at the Manchester-based club from Pete Wild who was appointed caretaker manager after the sacking of Frankie Bunn. The former England midfielder was in attendance as he watched Macclesfield beat Oldham 2-1 over the weekend.

Oldham chairman Abdallah Lesagam is currently in Dubai and is expected back in the country on Monday, when he will make a decision on the new manager. Scholes was briefly joint-caretaker manager of Salford, with Phil Neville, in 2015. The former United midfielder is a boyhood Oldham fan and was also interviewed by the club for the manager's job in October 2017 - when he missed out to Richie Wellens.
