Michael Gray has described reports of Rene Meulensteen sealing a return to Manchester United as “great news” for the Red Devils.

The Dutchman is rumoured to be on the brink of a return to Old Trafford as manager Louis van Gaal looks to add his compatriot to his Red Devils coaching staff.

Meulensteen left the 20-time English champions in May 2013 after club legend Sir Alex Ferguson called time on his reign at Old Trafford, rejecting the chance to work under David Moyes.

The 50-year-old endured a miserable reign as Fulham manager last season before he was sacked and replaced by German coach Felix Magath in February.

And former Sunderland midfielder Gray believes Meulensteen would be a great appointment to the United coaching staff if the recent rumours come true.

Meulensteen worked under Ferguson for six seasons at United, helping the Red Devils win three Premier League titles, the Champions League and two League Cup crowns.
