Brendan Rodgers and wife ‘house-hunting in Cheshire’ as he edges nearer Man Utd

Brendan Rodgers is reportedly house-hunting in Cheshire as he emerges as Manchester United's number one managerial target.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is under fire at the Red Devils, and United's 2-0 loss to Manchester City last weekend was reportedly the writing on the wall for the United hierarchy.

And, according to The Sun, the Red Devils called an emergency board meeting to discuss replacements – where Rodgers was identified as a top target.

The report also states that sources close to Rodgers and his wife has revealed that the couple are looking for a new home in Cheshire, just south of Manchester.

Rodgers' Leicester have struggled to reach the highs they accomplished last season this campaign.

The Foxes are currently 12th in the table, but they're only two points off sixth-placed United, and the recent upturn in form for Patson Daka could see them climb the table.

Last season, Leicester claimed their first title since their 15/16 Premier League fairytale.

Rodgers oversaw the Foxes FA Cup triumph over Chelsea thanks to a wondergoal from Youri Tielemans.

However, if Rodgers was to make the move to United, The Sun also claims that Rodgers won't be given any transfer budget.

The belief at United is that they have a squad that should be higher up in the table than they currently are, and throwing money at the team isn't a good idea.
