David Moyes is considering asking Phil Neville to join him at Manchester United next season as part of a new-look backroom team.
The Everton midfielder had already stated his intention to leave Goodison Park at the end of the season and it now seems as though he may well have an opportunity to return to his former club.
Neville came through the United academy and went on to win six league titles, the FA Cup three times and the Champions League during his 11 seasons at the club.
Now the Daily Mail reports that Moyes would like the former England international to join him as part of the coaching staff. Neville has not stated his intention to retire from his playing days but the chance to return to Old Trafford in a coaching capacity may be hard to turn down.
The 36-year-old is set to work with the England Under-21 side this summer at the European Championships in Israel and it has been expected that he will remain in the game once his playing days were over.
Neville may also be joined by another former Everton teammate, with reports suggesting that Moyes would also like to bring David Weir to Manchester United.
The 42-year-old spent nine years at Everton over two spells and is now working as reserve team coach at the Merseyside club. Should Weir and Neville join Moyes at United then that could mean a major change in the dressing room.
There would be question marks over the future of Mike Phelan, who worked as assistant under Sir Alex Ferguson, and first team coach Rene Meulensteen as it is yet unclear if Moyes would prefer to have his own men around him.
Most managers will tend to change a club's staff when they arrive at a new club and it is presumed that Moyes would like to have someone he trusts join him next season.
Neville may well be the perfect candidate as he remains good friends with current United stars Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes, while he has spent the last eight years working closely with Moyes at Everton.
