“My future will probably be resolved in the next few days.”

The 37-year-old however feels he could “play a part” in the Old Trafford club’s football “in other ways”, were he to be excluded from the new coaching set-up.

He also said he has kept contact with the club’s chief executive, Ed Woodward.

Former United playmaker Butt also hopes to remain involved with the 20-time champions.

“There isn’t a role I would turn down,” said the 39-year-old, who was in charge of the club’s U-19 in the Uefa Youth League last season.

“The last 18 months have been about my development as a coach. The next step might be managing different aspects of the game.

“I am open to anything, but my biggest thing is to have a purpose. Whether that is with 12-year-old kids or the first team is irrelevant.”
