Ole Gunnar Solskjær's fate at Manchester United continues to become thin day by day. Each passing moment at the club generates a different side to the story of failure which he has brought to the club for three years of his managerial reign.
Manchester United's earlier priority was Antonio Conte, but after United beat Tottenham at home, Nuno Espirito Santo was sacked and Antonio Conte was quickly snapped up by Tottenham further limiting the options Manchester United have.
The priority is now Leicester City's manager Brendan Rodgers who is said to be highly favoured among the United board as a viable replacement. The 49 year old Northern Irish manager is also said to be interested in taking over from Pep Guardiola at City when his contract expires.
Rodgers is a proven winner having won titles at Celtic in the Scottish Premier League and has also won at Leicester City, most recently the FA Cup and Community Shield. He has won nine trophies in his managerial career while Solskjær has won just three, all of which came at Molde in Norway.
