Ryan Giggs believes Patrice Evra and Rio Ferdinand still have a part to play at Manchester United.

The veteran Red Devils defenders, who won the Champions League together in 2008, are set to become free agents in the summer as their contracts wind down.

Evra and Ferdinand were expected to seek moves away from United, with Southampton left-back Luke Shaw heavily linked with a move to Old Trafford.

However, interim United manager Giggs feels Evra and Ferdinand deserve new deals after years of loyal service to the 20-time English champions.

“I do believe they still have a part to play,” Giggs said.

“Both their contracts are up but they have both given massive service to the club.

“They are both fit and they both looked good last week. I don’t see why not.

“It is a group discussion but I still think they have a lot to offer. They have been great players and they remain assets to a club like Manchester United.”
