Brendan Rodgers is ready to say yes to manchester United, if and when, they approach him to replace Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, 90min reports.

According to 90min, United’s hierarchyhad been determinant to stand by club legend Solskjaer for the rest of the season, but their patience has worn thin in recent weeks and now mives are being made in the background to replace the manager

90min now undertand that United started working on a succession plan includes looking at when Solskjaer may leave, and who would replace him.

A source has told 90min:”Things have been going on behind the scenes in weeks, the club are aware that things can’t continue like this – ideally Ole stay until the end of the season, but that is looking less and unlikely.”

In recent weeks there have been plenty of managers linked with the Man United job including; former Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane and current PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino both have fans at Old Trafford, but 90min understand that the man with the most support is Brendan Rodgers.

Rodgers was linked earlier this year, but some at United were put off by the links to their bitter rivals Liverpool – however the factthat Rodgers never won the title at Anfield is said to make his appointment possible and palatable.

Rodgers himself once commented that he did not think he could ever manage United due to his spell at Anfield, but intermediaries have concluded that this is now not the case.

Rodgers is aware of the possible backlash from both Liverpool and United fans, but sources told 90min that he has decided that he could not turn down an approach from the Red Devils if and when it arrives.

Leicester City understandbly would not welcome any approach from United, or any other suitor for Rodgers for that matter, as they look to qualify for the Champions League and establish themselves as the top – six side. However, theyb also know it would be difficult to keep him at the club if he wanted to move on. Rodgers spunned advances from Tottenham in the summer, but United are a different proposition.

While Rodgers is the front-runner to take over at Manchester United, the next big question for the club’s hierarchy is: when shouldb he take over?

There are different opinions within the club on this Rodgers saga. While some still maintain that Solskjaer should be given more time – others think he should be removed as soon as possible.
