Could a look at Gareth Bale be on Ryan Giggs' Euro 2016 agenda?

Ryan Giggs is hoping Louis van Gaal will deploy him on a scouting mission for United next June at the Euro 2016 championships.
 
The Reds assistant manager, of course, is hoping any duty preparing dossiers on potential newcomers to United, perhaps one final viewing of Wales' Real Madrid superstar Gareth Bale, will also enable him to sneak a look at his beloved Wales at the tournament in France.
 
During Giggs' glittering trophy-laden club career at Old Trafford the Welsh failed to qualify for either the World Cup or the European Championships leaving him retiring as a player without that stage on his CV.
 
But Chris Coleman's current side did what no other had done since 1958 and booked their place last month at Euro 2016.
 
And Giggs will definitely go to France.
 
“I’ll definitely be going in some capacity whether it’s as a fan or in a work capacity looking at some players,” he says.
 
“It’s going to be a great tournament for Wales. It’s their first tournament for such a long time and it will be great for them to be a part of it. Hopefully I can get along too.
 
“For whatever reason it didn’t happen for other Wales teams or teams I was involved in. It’s been such a long time, so everyone who has been involved with Wales in the past is delighted to see them finally do it.
 
“They have a great chance. When you look at the results they have had in qualifying there’ll definitely be teams who won’t want to come up against Wales next summer.”
