Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is hanging on by a thread and as per the latest rumours, Brendan Rodgers is going to be the man who will replace the Norwegian.
Despite making some top signings United have moved backwards this season losing four games already in the Premier League and after the defeat to Manchester City, there are rumours that the board might finally be looking to bring in a replacement.
The way the team is playing, the fans would want a new manager to arrive asap but according to CaughtOffside Brendan Rodgers could take the job at the end of the season.
Rodgers has reportedly had a verbal agreement to become the next Man United manager once the position becomes vacant.
What will Brendan Rodgers bring to Man United?
Well, for starters Rodgers is a manager who is tactically sound and can set up sides in various systems and also make changes in accordance to different situations.
He’s managed clubs like Liverpool and Celtic in the past so the 48-year-old knows exactly what it means to be under pressure.
He’s been managing Leicester for more than two years and in this time he’s managed to do some fantastic work with the Foxes. Yes, he’s failed to take the side into the Champions League but each time they have narrowly missed out meaning if he can work with a better side then there’s every chance he will go all the way.

While Ole has primarily been using a 4-3-3 system since becoming the Man United manager and it’s only in the past few weeks that he’s been relying on a 3-5-1-2 formation.
Brendan Rodgers, on the other hand, has used numerous systems this season itself. Leicester have lined up in 4-2-3-1, 4-3-3, 3-5-2, 5-4-1 and also a 4-4-1-1.
This just goes on to show the versatility of the Foxes boss and there’s no doubt he will be a much better upgrade than Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at Manchester United.
On the silverware side, Brendan Rodgers has won seven trophies with Celtic FC and two with Leicester City since taking charge in 2019 meaning he will bring in a winning pedigree at Old Trafford.
Should Brendan Rodgers take charge before the end of the season?
The report claims that the 48-year-old will preferably take charge at the end of the campaign but we doubt if Solskjaer will be able to last that long.
The way Man United are playing right now, they are bound to drop points in the next few months. And since the side are already sixth on the Premier League table and more slip-ups will not go down too well with the management.
Ole seems to have no tricks left up his sleeve so it’s only a matter of time before he’s shown the door at the club which means Brendan Rodgers(if he wants to become the next Man United boss) will have to leave the Foxes midway.
