Reports linking Brendan Rodgers to the Manchester United job are intensifying, as a new one has claimed that the Leicester City manager has gone house-hunting in Cheshire, as he prepares to take over from the embattled Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Solskjaer has continued to enjoy support from the club, despite underwhelming results in recent week. But with games away to Villareal and Chelsea, and a visit from Arsenal after the international break, the Norwegian’s future at the club is far from certain.

Brendan Rodgers is the clear favorite to be appointed for now, and everything seems to be falling in place, as The Sun reports that the former Liverpool boss is said to be looking for a family house in Cheshire, an area where many Man United players reside.

The news will surely excite some fans, especially those that want Solskjaer gone, but the report adds that if he does take over, he will not be getting any monies to buy players in January.

The Man Utd hierarchy believe they have spent enough to bring in the likes of Jadon Sancho, Cristiano Ronaldo and Raphael Varane, and they expect a new coach to bring out the best in them.

However, players who are struggling to play and unhappy, like Dean Henderson, Phil Jones and Donny van de Beek will be allowed to leave in January, as they seek more game time elsewhere.
