Ryan Giggs has welcomed Manchester United to stay at the hotel he co-owns with Gary Neville to help the duo’s former club avoid traffic on the way to home matches.
United are investigating a number of options after embarrassingly delays to their arrivals for Champions League games against Valencia and Juventus at Old Trafford, Sky Sports News understands.

“We’ve always said we would welcome the team,” said Giggs, who spent his entire playing career at United.
“I had it when I was a player and when I was a coach at United. Getting to the evening games can be difficult, getting out the city centre.

“We’re right on the doorstep at Old Trafford so it would be great if the club can stay and we’ve always said that.”
United were fined by UEFA for causing a late kick-off against Valencia, with the club subsequently switching to a closer hotel near the Old Trafford cricket ground for the Juventus game.
But the team still became stuck in traffic, causing manager Jose Mourinho to get out and walk, and the team to arrive at the ground less than an hour before kick-off.
“It’s a nightmare,” Giggs said of the city’s traffic.
“But obviously you don’t have that trouble when you’re 50 yards (away).
“You can walk.”
United’s next Champions League home game is against Swiss side Young Boys on November 27.
