Brendan Rodgers is seemingly the man that Man United want to take the job at Old Trafford…

Manchester United Football Club have a big decision to make over the next fortnight. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s job is hanging on by a thread, with the Baby Faced Assassin struggling to get the positive results needed to keep him in charge.

The Red Devils are slowly sliding down the table, while getting outclassed by the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool. That begs the question, is Solskjaer now on borrowed time?

Well, it seems like United are already looking elsewhere, with Caught Offside claiming that Brendan Rodgers is the prime target for the Old Trafford club…

Apparently, the 48-year-old manager has ‘verbally agreed’ to take the United job. Caught Offside add that ‘significant progress’ has been made between the two parties, though there are some hurdles that still have to be overcome.

It’s claimed that the Northern Irishman is ready to take over at the Theatre of Dreams, though in an ideal world, he’d prefer to wait until the end of the season. However, United are pushing for a deal to go through ‘now’.

Clearly, the Reds are ready to make a massive change. This feels like the ideal time to do it given we’re now entering into an international break.

The Glazer family and board have two weeks to find someone, sack Solskjaer and appoint the new manager. I fear that if we hear nothing concrete over the next few days, Solskjaer could be here to stay until the end of the season.

Rodgers seems like the ideal fit. He has Premier League experience, loves developing youth and is excellent at finding bargains in the transfer market. That’s the United way.

Personally, I’d hope he’d be ready to take the job now, though he’d definitely upset some Leicester City fans if that happens…

Would Brendan Rodgers be a good hire? Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below.
