Oldham have interviewed Manchester United great Paul Scholes for their vacant manager's position, according to Sky sources.
The League One club declined to comment on reports linking Scholes with the vacancy created when John Sheridan was sacked last month.
Scholes is a life-long Oldham fan and a regular visitor to Boundary Park but has no managerial experience apart from a brief stint as part of Ryan Giggs' backroom staff following David Moyes' dismissal as Manchester United manager.
Scholes has been working as a television pundit and co-owns non-league club Salford City with some of his former United team-mates.
GIC IPO subscribed 79% on day one
At the end of bidding, the quota of shares reserved for retail investors in the IPO was subscribed 2.54 times. The IPO opens today for three days - Wednesday, October 11 to Friday, October 13.
Ex-Netherlands midfielder Clarence Seedorf also held surprise talks with Oldham, but is now out of the running.
Sheridan left Oldham at the foot of the table but they have risen to 19th under the temporary management of Richie Wellens, their former midfielder, who wants the permanent job.
Sources say the four-time Champions League victor is keen to secure a job in England, but will only consider offers from the Premier League and the Championship.
He won 11 Premier League titles at Old Trafford and was capped 66 times by England before announcing his retirement in 2004.
