Manchester United interim boss Ryan Giggs says the club's squad does not require significant surgery in the summer despite reports the club are preparing a major overhaul this summer.

United's owners the Glazer family are set to hand expected new manager Louis van Gaal the finances to help return the club to their former glory.

After relinquishing their Premier League title in limp fashion, United are set for their lowest ever finish in the division's era but Giggs, before the 3-1 win over Hull City, used his pre-match programme notes to defend the current squad.

"I have seen enough from this position to convince me that the next manager will be inheriting a squad capable of winning honours," wrote Giggs.

"I don't buy into the theory that this club needs to bring in lots of new players and sell off a lot of the current squad.

"We have always strengthened here at United, in times of success as much as in times of rebuilding, and I am sure we will be doing business in the next transfer window, but a few carefully chosen recruits will bring the best out of the existing squad.

"We saw as recently as our win over Norwich that the players are capable of overrunning opponents, while the sheer number of winner's medals shared between the players in the dressing room speaks for itself.

"This is a club and a squad accustomed to winning, and every single member of the playing staff and coaching staff recognises that this season has fallen well short of the standards we have set."

Giggs is expected to make up part of the exodus from Old Trafford, with the Welshman not expected to remain as a player while his role in Van Gaal's backroom team is uncertain.

Rio Ferdinand and Patrice Evra are both out of contract and are yet to agree new deals with United, while captain Nemanja Vidic will join Inter Milan.
