Despite rumours linking Rene Meulensteen with a return to Manchester United, Sky sources understand the Dutchman will not be heading to Old Trafford to take up a role under his compatriot Louis van Gaal.

Stories had emerged this week that the 50-year-old could be heading back to the club for a third time but this appears not to be the case.

Meulensteen first joined United in 2001 to work with the youth team before leaving five years later to become manager of Danish side Brondby.

He returned to Manchester to become Sir Alex Ferguson's assistant for six seasons before departing in the summer of 2013 following the appointment of David Moyes as manager.

Last season he spent around two months as manager of Fulham before being sacked by the-then Premier League club in February.

On Monday he joins presenter Jim White on transfer deadline day with Sky Sports News.
