Former Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson has reportedly made it clear in private conversations with friends that he would not consider any attempts by his former club to lure him out of retirement.
The most successful manager in Old Trafford's history has no intentions of coming back to the dug-out despite mounting pressure on David Moyes, the report added.
According to the Mirror, Ferguson also told his approaching fans during his current New York trip that he would never consider taking back the reins he himself handed over to Moyes with his full blessing and support.
A United source said that Ferguson was enjoying his retirement and there was no chance of him returning as manager.
The source also said that if Ferguson fully backed his decision of introducing Moyes as his successor and is always ready to help Moyes should the manager want to seek his advice.
United's Florida-based owners, the Glazers, however will conduct a thorough review at the end of the season to investigate their club's spectacular fall from grace.
