Former Manchester United midfielder admitted that he considered joining Everton when he came out of retirement.
The Englishman retired from football in 2011 and then made a U-turn a year later and while he continued with United until he hanged his boots, he told DAZN via Metro, that he considered making a move to Goodison Park.
"I came back in September with Warren Joyce and the U23s and I was training every day. I felt as fit as I'd probably ever had done after having four months off – it was just the break I needed. I said to Joyce that I wanted to play again-I just wanted to play.
"Where it was I don't care. I didn't expect United to want me back. I spoke to Phil Neville and he said: "Come and play for Everton". I've never really wanted to play for anyone else or be involved with any other club but if that was the only option I had then I might have done it, I don't know," Scholes said.
On his return, Scholes helped United to another Premier League title before retiring officially in 2013.
