Football: THAT'S ONE OF THE GREAT GIGGS.
INTER Milan are planning an audacious double swoop for David Beckham and Ryan Giggs, it emerged last night.
The Italian giants have made no secret of their desire to sign Welsh winger Giggs, and have now revealed their desire to try to prise Becks away from Old Trafford.
Inter are likely to table a bid of pounds 20million for Giggs at the end of the season, which the United board would find hard to turn down for a player of 29.
Inter president Massimo Moratti believes Beckham is also only worth pounds 20m, a valuation which United would not even consider for their most high profile and marketable player.
Yet it seems increasingly likely Giggs, who dazzled with a double in Turin last night, will turn his back on Alex Ferguson if Inter make an acceptable offer.
Moratti said: "Take Giggs and Beckham? It would be fantastic, but what would Manchester United think about it? It is a bit early to talk about it now, but there could be some interesting discussions very soon.
"We could close this deal but with English teams it is often difficult to find the right price.
"We will have to wait and see."
United chief executive Peter Kenyon said: "We are trying to avoid transfer speculation."
FERGIE is all smiles
