Brendan Rodgers house-hunting in Cheshire ahead of possible Manchester United move – originally posted on Sportslens.com
There is a lot of speculation about the future of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.
The Red Devils were expected to challenge for the Premier League title this season after they signed Jadon Sancho, Raphael Varane and Cristiano Ronaldo in the summer transfer window.
However, they are currently nine points behind the leaders Chelsea in the league table after a series of disappointing performances.
United lost 5-0 against Liverpool at Old Trafford followed by another humiliating 2-0 home defeat against Manchester City last week.
Solskjaer’s position at the club looks precarious now, with reports also suggesting senior players have lost faith in him.
Leicester City boss Brendan Rodgers is said to be the Red Devils’ number one candidate to replace the Norwegian.
And as per a report from The Sun, the 48-year-old is looking for a new house in Cheshire.
This will only increase speculation that Rodgers will become the next manager at Old Trafford before Christmas.
The Northern Irish football expert is highly qualified for the United job. He led the Foxes to a fifth-place finish in his first full season, thus securing them Europa League football.
He also guided the East Midlands outfit to their first FA Cup title in May when they defeated Chelsea 1-0 in the final.
Leicester also finished fifth in the Premier League last season under the 48-year-old, qualifying for Europa League again.
