Man Utd board confident Rodgers would accept job if offered it

Manchester United's board is confident Leicester City manager Brendan Rodgers would take the job if it was offered.

The Daily Star says United are growing increasingly confident of being able to make Brendan Rodgers as their next manager.

United bosses are keen to appoint a British boss should the club have no choice but to sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And Old Trafford chiefs believe Rodgers would be keen on taking the job, provided a deal can be struck with his club Leicester.

Rodgers would be reluctant to leave the Foxes, but knows there is little more he can realistically achieve there - and would find the chance to manage United almost impossible to turn down.

Rodgers is believed to have a release clause in his contract should a Champions League club come calling.

But United wouldn't hesitate in meeting it if they need to appoint a new boss.
