Prosecutors abandoned the star’s retrial after the alleged victim – Giggs’ ex-partner Kate Greville – “indicated an unwillingness” to continue.
Jurors previously failed to reach a verdict over the allegations last August.
Giggs is said to be plotting a remarkable football comeback over “unfinished business” with the game.
A source said: “The last three years his life has been put on hold, but he’s a huge football man.
“He’s been found not guilty and wants to get back into the game. He’s football through and through.”
Giggs is a co-owner of League Two outfit Salford alongside ex-United stars David Beckham, Gary Neville, Phil Neville & Paul Scholes.
Giggs, 48, was accused of assaulting Kate Greville at his £1.7million home in Worsley, Greater Manchester, on November 1, 2020.
He was also charged with attacking her sister Emma Greville on the same date and controlling or coercive behaviour against Kate over a three-year period.
