Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson is set to offer new contracts to Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes. Ferguson believes Giggs, 36, and Scholes, 35, can both play a key role in helping develop United's emerging young players.

"Ryan will be offered a new contract for next season, which is an indication of what we think of him coming up to 37 next season, and Paul knows he will be offered one as well," Ferguson said.

Scholes was recently reported to have said that he was considering quitting United at the end of the season because of a lack of first team opportunities in the last six months.

But Ferguson insists Scholes still has a future at Old Trafford.

"I spoke to Paul and he said he didn't actually say he was thinking of his future," he said.

"When you get to that age every player starts to think about what the future holds for him.

"But when you see Paul's performances at West Ham and in Wolfsburg last week there is no reason to think he can't do it again next year again.

"Maybe he thinks he should be playing every game. That's fine, but I know that's not fair.

"We want the quality. We want to see Scholes perform like he did on Tuesday and the best way of doing that is to gauge the games we know he is going to dominate."
