Manchester United look set to appoint a permanent manager next summer when Ralf Rangnick’s interim role comes to an end and he takes up a consultancy role at the club. And it is safe to say that the Red Devils will need to get this appointment right, as they appear to be headed towards their fifth straight trophyless campaign. It does without saying that the situation is far from ideal at Old Trafford.
Erik ten Hag and Mauricio Pochettino are the two managers who have been heavily linked with the Manchester United job in recent weeks, and both of them are interesting names to consider for sure.
Another manager who had been rumoured with Manchester United in the past is Brendan Rodgers, but those appeared to have faded away significantly as Leicester City have struggled this season. They have cropped up once again though.
As reported by the Daily Mail, Rodgers has found himself a new home in Wilmslow, just 13 miles away from Old Trafford.
Rodgers to Manchester United rumours emerge once again
It is safe to say that Rodgers finding a new home in Wilmslow has led to speculation that he might be looking for a job in the Manchester area next. One must remember that there have also been rumours in the past which have suggested that Manchester City view him as a potential successor to Pep Guardiola.
It will be interesting to see what the future holds for Rodgers. Leicester City have struggled this season, after back-to-back fifth place finishes in the Premier League along with an FA Cup and a Community Shield during the manager’s run at the King Power Stadium.
Someone like Rodgers has the potential to be a great fit for Manchester United but at this point of time, the likes of Pochettino and Ten Hag appear to be ahead of him in the running for the Old Trafford job.
