The Premier League champions parted company with their former manager David Moyes last Tuesday, despite the Scot being only 10 months into a bumper six-year deal.

And already the Red Devils have been heavily linked with the current Netherlands national team boss Louis van Gaal as Moyes’s replacement at the Theatre of Dreams next season, with the Dutchman having hinted that he would like to bring Keane with him to the north west as one of his assistant coaches this summer.

However, Keane has already been quick to rule himself out of the running to make a dramatic return to his former club.

“People, ironically enough, keep asking me about other jobs,” Keane told Irish radio station TodayFM.

“I’ve got a job and I’m very happy in my job.”

And the Irishman was also asked about the possibility of him ever speaking to his former boss Sir Alex Ferguson, who is now a director at United.

“Nah I’m not sure. Probably not,” Keane said. “But look I’ve said that about other people before.

“Football’s a funny old game and you get a clash of personalities sometimes but it’s something that’s not on my mind at the moment to be honest with you.”
