Manchester United have been rocked by reports that Sir Alex Ferguson is about to walk away.

The Sun says bookies slashed the odds on the manager’s 27-year reign coming to an end to an astonishing 7-4 ON.

And Everton boss David Moyes was rapidly installed as favourite to succeed Fergie, becoming 11-10 ON to take over the Old Trafford hotseat.

There were even unconfirmed reports that United’s stars had been warned to expect a “major statement” imminently.

Social media sites were awash with rumours that Fergie will step aside after Sunday’s home match against Swansea, when his beloved United will be presented with the Premier League crown — their 20th top-flight title and 13th under the Scot.

News that Fergie, 71, will have a hip operation during the summer — coupled with Moyes’ reluctance to sign a new deal at Goodison Park — combined to feed the mania about his future.
