Manchester United had enjoyed a brilliant start to the season under Ole Gunnar Saolskjaer with many touting them as one of the candidates for the league title due to the recruitment of stars such as Raphael Varane, Jadon Sancho and returning legend Cristiano Ronaldo, which saw the Red Devils break the bank.

However,  Manchester United have fallen off the lace in recent weeks, winning just once in their last five league games which has seen them fall five points behind Champions League places and nine behind leaders Chelsea. This recent slump in form has increased the pressure on boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

It is understood that Manchester United had made a four-man shortlist of candidates to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer which includes the likes of Brendan Rodgers, Antonio Conte, Erik Ten Haag and Zinedine Zidane.

But since Conte has joined Tottenham and it is understood the current Ajax boss and former Real Madrid manager are not interested in the position at the moment, leaving Brendan Rodgers as the leading candidate and United are confident of luring the Foxes boss if they decide to make a change.
