Rodgers’ playing style is said to have impressed the United hierarchy, with his promotion of youth and ability to work on a budget.

United would have to pay a compensation fee to Leicester should they wish to hire Rodgers, who is contracted to the Foxes until 2023.

The club would also have to pay Solskjaer around £4.5m, meaning the decision could prove costly for the Red Devils.
