And the Sun have reported that Scholes will now answer the call if it comes in the second half of the season.

United have been struggling in midfield in recent weeks, and have suffered an awful few days with defeats against Blackburn and Newcastle.

Scholes joined United as a 14-year-old and went on to make nearly 700 appearances for the Reds.
