BRENDAN RODGERS is the clear favourite for the Manchester United job.

Solskjaer’s tenure is hanging by a thread after a series of disappointing results.

The Red Devils have won just three of their last 10 fixtures in all competitions and trail leaders Chelsea by nine points.

United were comprehensively outclassed by rivals Liverpool and Manchester City before the international break.

And that’s led two claims that senior players have lost faith in the Norwegian.

SunSport understand United chiefs held an emergency board meeting to discuss future plans and potential replacements.

Rodgers is their first-choice option and Betfair agree with the 48-year-old the 4/6 odds-on frontrunner for the position.

Sources close to Rodgers have revealed he and his wife are now searching for a property in the Cheshire area.

The Daily Star report that the former Liverpool boss would find it ‘almost impossible’ to reject United’s advances.

And claim he’s got a release clause in his contract should a Champions League club come knocking.

Elsewhere Zinedine Zidane is available at 5/2.

The Frenchman remains a free agent having left Real Madrid in May.

Zidane is one of three managers to win the Champions League three times and also collected two Club World Cups, two Uefa Super Cups and two Spanish Super Cups.

Portuguese journalist Pedro Almeida claims that discussions between United and Zidane are underway.

However, Zidane’s preference is to succeed Didier Deschamps as manager of the French national side.

He wrote on Instagram: “Talks on between Zinedine Zidane and Manchester United.

“Attention. The deal is difficult because the French coach’s preference right now is to coach a national team.”

Mauricio Pochettino is 11/2, ahead of Ajax’s highly-rated Erik ten Hag and Ralf Rangnick at 9s.
